This post was originally published on this site

Cancer is the leading cause of disease-related death among children ages 15 and younger. Approximately 10,000 new cases are diagnosed every year, more than half of them leukemia or cancers of the central nervous system. How is treating cancer in children different from treating it in adults? How do children cope with a disease they can hardly understand? And what happens to a family after losing a child to cancer?
