World Health News Today

I was contacted last month about participating in an interview with my daughter for a news piece that World Health News Today wanted to film on Kids Konnected. The reporter and photographer came to my house and spent about 1 ½ hours filming me and then they attended a Kids Konnected meeting to film my daughter and the teen group. It is always interesting to me to see how much is filmed and what remains on the editing floor. I hope it highlights just how important Kids Konnected has been in our lives since my diagnosis.

Sometimes it is hard to be at the meetings and see another new family come in that has been affected by cancer. At least there is a place for support and understanding, for the kids, for the parents, but mostly for the kids. Sometimes kids do not want other people to know their parent has cancer. At Kids Konnected they can talk about it because everyone there has been touched by cancer.

I wish that kids never had to worry about one or sometimes both of their parents having to fight cancer or dying from cancer, but for now that wish is just that …. a wish. Until we have a cure Kids Konnected is a place for the affected families to seek help and support.
