    The hospital gave to me the day after diagnosis I so much appreciated this gift from themA couple of things I would of liked to see was a section about conversations with kids about dying There is a section on death but that was about actual death but not the early stages of conversation around that I was so worried but the uestion didn't come up for a month and by then I knew so I think I handled it okayAlso our hospital talks a lot about ANC APC ANC is touched on in the book but I would of liked information so I could really understand The book didn't discuss APC at all Our nurses say APC needs to be above 250 and the ANC rising for the child to be removed from positive pressure room another thing that wasn't discussed but the book only mentions ANC should be above 500 to avoid infectionI really loved how the parents children comments were throughout the book The author would discuss something then there was a related parentchild commentI will refer back to this book whenever I need information ETA I never did

    I didn't really read the WHOLE thingI read parts that I was interested in I was doing research at my own leisure and found some very interesting things about leukemia My mom actually read this book She said it was a lifesaver and now I understand why This book is sooo helpful and very useful to parents who have a child with leukemia It tells you a very detailed description about what leukemia is what the possible treatment options are common side effects and so much But it also goes into the emotional part too It has a whole chapter on siblings and how they might react and feel It has advice on what to tell your child with leukemia and how they might react and what uestions they might ask and how to respond to them It has a chapter on finance It has advice on how to act around your child with leukemia It has a chapter on relatives It even has a chapter on the funeral if your child dies It has everything I had leukemia so I can say that this book is very accurate And I would REALLY REALLY REALLY recommend this book to ANY parent who has a child with ANY type of leukemia THIS BOOK IS GREAT

    This was the best resource for me after my daughter was diagnosed with leukemia I wish I could buy extra copies to have at the oncology office so they could give them to parents when their children are diagnosed Parents of kids with leukemia can apply for a free copy from the ACCO but it is worth every penny if you buy your own
