Coping Skills and Self Advocacy during Pediatric Cancer with Advocate & Momcologist Crissy
Play • 19 min

-018- Join me as I interview author, advocate, life coach, and momcologist Christina Johnson. Her son, David, was diagnosed with childhood cancer (High-Risk Neuroblastoma) due to circumstances, discussed in the episode, she felt alone. She used her journal, now a book, to cope and release her emotions. She also knew she had to stand up for her son, as you do your child because, before diagnosis, no one would listen. She went to the emergency room, pediatricians, and finally saw a pediatric oncologist to get the care David needed. She not only explains her story but also gives tips to parents on how to manage through this horrible time, diagnosis of pediatric cancer, treatment of cancer, and life after treatment. Cancer does not have a stopping point, and she gets into details about what this means. So please tune in, I think you can get a lot out of this episode on coping skills and also identifying with a fellow parent.
