When you first hear from your doctor that your child suffers from cancer, you may feel overwhelmed and so emotional that you have a hard time talking with your son or daughter. Once your child receives his or her diagnosis, you should sit down as a family and go over exactly what that means now and for the future to help your child cope better with that diagnosis.
Stick to a Normal Routine:
Some parents are more lenient with their children after those kids learn they have cancer and begin treatment. This can make it harder for your child to transition back into a normal routine later. As the parent of a child dealing with cancer, you should stick to some type of normal routine. Kids should still go to bed at the same time, do whatever chores they can handle, and keep up with their schoolwork.
Explain Treatment Options:
Make sure that your child understands both the diagnosis of pediatric cancer given by a doctor and the treatment options available, too. Kids often feel scared about doctors' appointments and worried about how the treatments will affect them. You need to make sure that they know all about the potential side effects they might experience, including nausea and hair loss. The more knowledge your child has about an upcoming appointment, the better he or she will feel about seeing the doctor.
Keep Your Child Comfortable:
When you help your child feel more comfortable after appointments, you can better help your child cope with a cancer diagnosis. This might mean curling up in bed to read a book together, taking a short walk around the neighborhood to enjoy some fresh air, or even cooking a simple meal together.
You'll also want to look for ways to increase your child's comfort after a treatment like treating your child to ice cream or soup when he or she cannot eat solid foods. Your child may even appreciate watching some films about younger people who suffered from cancer. Keep in mind that some of these films may be too emotional for younger viewers.
Cancer is hard for both adults and children, but you can help your child better cope with a cancer diagnosis from a doctor. ...

برای بسیاری از ما، استاندارد علامتی است نقش شده بر پشت یک کالا تا خیال ما را موقع خرید از بابت کیفیت راحت کند ولی برای محک، استاندارد مفهوم گستردهتری دارد. از روز تولد تا همین امروز که محک سازمانی سی ساله است، سؤالی را هر روز و هر لحظه از خودش پرسیده است: در درست بودن هدفمان، که همان کاستن رنج کودکان مبتلا به سرطان و خانوادههایشان است، شک نداریم ولی برای رسیدن به این هدف، آیا بهترین روشهای کاری را انتخاب کردهایم؟
این روش باید همزمان منجر به دو اتفاق شود: تضمین خدمترسانی به کودکان مبتلا به سرطان در بالاترین سطح کیفی و مدیریت اعتماد و نیکوکاری مردم. دستیابی به چنین روشی تنها با اتکا بر اصول مدیریتی و دانشی که هر لحظه به روز و در قالب استاندارد ارائه میشود ممکن است. استاندارد و الزاماتش به عنوان بهترین روشهای آزموده، راهنمای محک در تمام زمان فعالیتش بوده است.
از بیست سال پیش و قبل از هر مؤسسه خیریه در ایران، محک خودخواسته و داوطلبانه، بدون آنکه الزامی قانونی وجود داشته باشد، خود را در معرض ارزشیابیهای متعدد قرار داده است و نتایج چنین پایشهایی را در اختیار تمام ذیربطان خود قرار داده است.
تجربه به ما نشان داده که بهترین معیار ارزیابی عملکرد ما اول رضایت بیمار و خانواده او و پس از آن ارزیابی سازمانهای مستقلی است که بدون ذرهای چشمپوشی یا اغماض، فرایندهای کاری ما را بررسی میکنند. هر قدر که این ارزیابی سختگیرانهتر باشد، کسب آن استاندارد دشوارتر و ارزش آن بیشتر است. بدون کسب چنین استانداردهایی هیچگاه از درستی روشهای خود مطمئن نخواهیم بود.
امروز، روز جهانی استاندارد است. امیدواریم که بتوانیم با کسب استانداردهایی هرچه سختتر و دقیقتر، امانتدار خوبی برای اعتماد شما باشیم. اعتماد شما تنها سرمایه محک است. این روز رو به فعالان این حوزه، سازمانها و افرادی که در این مسیر محک رو همراهی کردن تبریک میگوییم ...

Every child deserves a chance at a life filled with happiness and health. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the disease not only changes the child’s life, but the entire family’s life. Coping with the life-threatening illness along with emotional turmoil is a great challenge. Aside from the physical pain and emotional challenges inflicted by cancer, treating this disease is very expensive, often posing financial hardships on families seeking quality treatment for a child with cancer
. At ISCC, a kids’ cancer charity
, we believe that no child suffering from cancer should be left untreated. Thus, our purpose is to globally increase access to treatment for underprivileged children with cancer
. We are strongly committed to supporting these children and their families during the healing process. Our international cancer society is publicly supported through donations from individuals, charitable foundations and businesses that recognize the urgent need to improve treatment and increase cure rates of childhood cancers. We, a charity for children with cancer
, invite you to join us in our mission to deliver hope and support to underprivileged cancer stricken children and their families, and in helping children with cancer around the world.
Although coping with a cancer diagnosis and managing the treatments is painful and difficult, it is important to remember that the majority of child cancer patients survive this devastating disease if diagnosed and treated early. A new study put out by the University of Colorado Denver examines the stages and survival rates of cancer. The results of this study indicate that people living in poor neighborhoods have a greater risk of dying from cancer than people with a higher socioeconomic status. In the poorest 25 countries in the world, an estimated 90% of children diagnosed with cancer die. The disparity in survival rates between rich and poor countries is greater for childhood cancers than for any other cancers. Although there has been remarkable progress in the fight against cancer, the incidence of cancer among children is increasing worldwide, particularly in third world countries where access to information and treatment for cancer control is limited or nonexistent. ISCC’s mission is to support children with cancer
and make a difference in the lives of cancer-stricken children, adolescents, and their families by providing access to the highest quality care and service possible, regardless of their financial status. ISCC, a charity for children with cancer, is able to do this by raising funds through various vehicles, then granting these funds to hospitals around the world that specialize in treating childhood cancer, such as MAHAK and CHOC Hospital, and cancer research centers, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, around the world.
