When a young person has cancer, in reality, the whole family ‘has’ cancer. We invited siblings to share their experience when their sister or brother was diagnosed and underwent treatment. The siblings explore: Who does the extra work at home? Is it okay to be jealous of the time your parents are spending with your sibling (and the extra gifts they may be getting)? How do you advocate for your sibling? Listen in as the sibling pairs discuss cancer’s impact on the whole family.
