Tackle School Challenges Head-On for Kids with Cancer
It makes sense that children and teens undergoing pediatric cancer treatment miss some school. There are days when they don't have the energy to keep up with their homework, and days when they can't go to school at all. Sometimes they might make it to class, only to feel listless and unable to concentrate. Existing learning disabilities may not get enough attention, and extra-curricular activities might have to be sidelined. But there's a lot parents and teachers can do to help children with cancer stay on track and at grade level.
