i am new to this list, but not new to childhood cancers. My daughter was diagnosed in 1992 with ALL when she was 21 months old. What a struggle is was, suffereing from a near deadly fungal infection for a very long time. There are some lasting effects, but hey she is here!! Well she is getting ready to graduate from high school and leave to the mainland. (we are in hawaii) I am going through what all parents of seniors are but it is compounded by my fears and anxieties of her getting sick or needed medical care etc. I am driving her nuts, and I find I am crying alot. It was just her and I during her illness and I am so afraid to let her go....any suggestions from other parents who have had their survivors move on, please let me know.thank you!!
