Pacific Cove's insight:

In addition, a father’s behavior toward his children matters to their happiness. “Children who feel accepted by their parents are independent and emotionally stable, have strong self-esteem and hold a positive worldview,” Raeburn writes. Those who feel rejected, however, are hostile, unstable and negative. And a father’s acceptance matters as much as a mother’s.  #Family #Fathers

#BrainTumor Thursday - If your child asks you to go walking, throw a ball or just sit on the floor and play, do it! #BrainCancer, BrainTumor

He lost the ability to walk, he lost the ability to speak as well as he used to, and he gets depressed at times, said Jonathan.

“It kills you to see your child like that,” he said of his son, who looks with envy at other children who can run and jump and play the way he can’t. “I couldn’t do what he’s doing.”

Chase’s Best Shot: One Boy’s Remarkable Triumph Over Pediatric Brain Cancer | St. Baldrick’s Blog
See on Scoop.it - Brain Tumors

Chase will need echocardiograms to monitor his heart, as one of the adult chemo drugs given to him is known for weakening the heart.  All this in addition to areas of permanent hair loss and the scar that crosses his head like baseball stitching from forehead to nape.


Pacific Cove's insight:

And because he was irradiated, he will face many physical, neurological, and developmental challenges. All too often, this is what it means to fight pediatric cancer. The collateral damage of the battle is so high — sometimes too high. #BrainCancer #BrainTumor #BTSM
