Okay … Now What? Hard Cover by Pam Chila Smith
It is a very scary word: cancer. It’s even scarier when it’s your own child.
Every parent wants to be Wonder Woman or Superman, but even the strongest and bravest of parents sometimes need help during stressful and tumultuous times. For Pamela Chila Smith, that time was when her teenage son, Nicholas, was diagnosed with brain cancer.
Okay.. Now What? is a guide for new cancer parents, written from the heart of experience. Throughout the book, Pamela offers clear, direct, and empathetic advice for parents challenged with the task of keeping their sick child as healthy and comfortable as possible as well as making sure proper care is provided. She stresses the importance of listening and paying attention to the child and staying on top of everything and everyone, so nothing is missed.
Take notes. Ask questions. Stay strong. And remember to breathe.
