This Booklet Is For You
If your brother or sister has cancer, this booklet is for you.
In this booklet you will:
- Hear from other teens who - like you - have a brother or sister with cancer
- Find out what has helped them
- Get ideas about people to talk with when you're upset or feel all alone
- Learn a little about cancer and how it's treated.
This booklet can't give you all the answers, but it can help you prepare for some of the things you might face.
There is a team of people working hard to help your brother or sister get better. You should know that there are also many people available to help you. No one should go through this alone.
You may want to read the booklet from cover to cover. Or maybe you'll just read those sections that interest you most. Some teens pull out the booklet now and again when they need it. You may want to share this booklet with others in your family. It might help you bring up something that has been on your mind. You could ask people in your family to read a certain chapter and then talk about it together.
