Childhood (pediatric) cancers

The address of this page is www.bestcancersites.com/childhood/

Please note that I have stopped adding new entries to this website as of 2011 due to my ageing eyes and the need to do some other things in life while time permits. I've kept the site online, as based on past experience, a plethora of the web sites I've listed here will continue to be good sources of info and support for years to come, as their creators or owners continue to improve them.

This is an area where I have not so far ventured. Fortunately I do not need to re-invent the wheel. Patty's Pediatric Oncology Resource Center website at www.ped-onc.org has a wealth of annotated links to pediatric cancer websites and other resources relating to childhood cancers and parenting children with cancer. There's also a lot of childhood cancers information on her website.

She describes the Ped-Onc Resource Center as a website for parents, friends, and families of children who have or had childhood cancer, created by parents of children with cancer.

Patty's son was diagnosed with ALL in 1997 and there's a special section on Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on the site.

Another section is called "Grand listing of cancer kid web pages - "Stories and Faces"". She says "Families of children with cancer all around the world have created web pages to tell us their stories. These pages come in all shapes and sizes. Each one is special, just as each child is special. My goal is to maintain a complete listing of all childhood cancer personal web pages". 

"There's also a listing of many online support groups (mailing lists and message boards) including several ACOR mailing lists that Patty co-administrates."

Her website address again is www.ped-onc.org. I also suggest checking out my webpages here on www.bestcancersites.com for the cancer type you are involved with, as on most cancer websites some of the information and support will be relevant to persons of any age.

There's also a long list of annotated links to children's cancer websites and organisations, on Nancy Kovak's "Nancy's List" website at www.nancyslist.org. Go to the home page, hover your mouse pointer over "Populations" at the top of the home page, and click on Children in the drop-down menu that displays.

Nancy is a stage 4 ovarian cancer survivor and a clinical psychologist. She says "As a survivor and clinical psychologist, I have had the honor to be invited into the lives of over 500 cancer patients at all stages of their disease. I work with men, women, children, teens, and young adults, from newly diagnosed to those lucky ones in remission, with all kinds of cancer. I also work with their partners, children, loved ones, and caregivers on the journey."

If you know of any other good websites relevant to childhood cancer not mentioned by Patty or Nancy or myself, please send details to me at everest@bestcancersites.com
