Webchat: Parenting during Cancer Treatment

  • Parents and guardians living with cancer tuned in for a live video webchat with social workers Allison Dibiaso, LICSW, and Kelly Drummond, LCSW. Viewers and participants learned tips for:

    • Telling children about a cancer diagnosis
    • Managing family life during treatment
    • Forming a support system

    Dibiaso and Drummond, who work with Dana-Farber’s Family Connections program, were joined by Sarah Silvia, a patient raising three young sons during treatment.

    As with most of our webchats, viewers submitted their questions by emailing, or by tweeting them to @DanaFarber using the hashtag #DFCIwebchat.
