Chronically ill children

Chronically ill children

Caring for a child with a chronic disease raises many questions and places parents under a lot of strain. On you will find a number of self-help groups, parents’ associations and information centres focusing on children with chronic diseases. There are also foundations which offer parents of chronically ill children support and respite. Other foundations grant wishes to terminally or chronically ill children. You can find their addresses at the end of this chapter.
