Early research from a Nemours Hospital for Children study indicates that when a child is diagnosed with cancer, about 60% of siblings can suffer from cancer-related post-traumatic stress symptoms. This is exactly why we include brothers and sisters in our Year of Joy program. When a child is diagnosed, the whole family is diagnosed.
