How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime | Nadine Burke Harris
Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up. Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain. This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.

Children and young adults with parents with cancer - Video abstract: 28984
Video abstract of original research paper "Children and young adults with parents with cancer: a population-based study" published in open access journal Clinical Epidemiology by Astri Syse, Gjøril B Aas, Jon H Loge. Read the full paper here: http://www.dovepress.com/children-and-young-adults-with-parents-with-cancer-a-population-based--peer-reviewed-article-CLEP Background: Today many people are choosing to have children later in life. Additionally, the use of sophisticated diagnostic tools and screening modalities has increased over recent years. Because of these factors, cancer is being diagnosed more frequently during the child-rearing years. Sociodemographic and cancer-related information on families and minor (0--18 years) and young adult (YA) (19--25 years) children experiencing parental cancer is scarce, but this information is vital for healthcare initiatives aimed toward those potentially adversely affected. Therefore, the aim of this study was to describe features of families and minor and YA children affected by parental cancer in a nationwide population. Methods: Complete Norwegian birth cohort data were obtained from national registries. Descriptive prevalence and incidence statistics were collected for parents and minor and YA children. Logistic regression models were used to assess factors likely to influence parental death. Results: Every year around 0.3% of all families with children under the age of 18 years encounter parental cancer, and 3.1% of minors and 8.4% of YAs have a parent who has been diagnosed with cancer. This study found skin, breast, testicular, and colorectal cancers were the most common forms of cancer diagnosed. The sociodemographic features of those affected were fairly similar to those of the general population. One in five children experienced parental death from cancer; parental death was more often paternal than maternal and was most common in parents diagnosed with leukemia or brain, colorectal, and lung tumors. Deaths are uncommon among parents without cancer. Conclusion: Adequate assistance for minor and YA children affected by parental cancer requires knowledge of their number and characteristics. Parental cancer is more common than previously suggested: the annual incidence of parental cancer for children under 18 years of age is 0.3%, whereas approximately 4% of children aged 0--25 years have or have had parents diagnosed with cancer, corresponding to a population prevalence of 1.4%. Around 20% of these children experience parental death, and surveys of live respondents should account for this.

FCV097 Parents, kids, and cancer — Guest: Heather Von St. James
Three months after Heather Von St. James gave birth to her first child, she was diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer caused by asbestos. She was told she had fifteen months to live. Fast-forward eleven years and Heather is very much alive and has dedicated her life to helping parents who are cancer patients. "My job, as an advocate, is not to tell patients the 'right way' to do things." Heather says. "Those parents know their kids far better than I do. (The question is) how much do you think (your child) can handle? I know what works for my daughter. (That's all.) It's more important for me to support them in their decision and maybe suggest things that might work better." Annie talks to Heather about helpful ways for parents to respond to children's questions, concerns and worries about a parent's health challenges and how help your child get the community support he or she needs at this time. About Heather Von St. James (@HeatherVSJ) Heather Von St. James is an 11-year cancer survivor, cancer research advocate, and blogger. She is a contributor to Huffington Post and offers a message of courage, inspiration and hope. Heather also serves as a mesothelioma research funding advocate and conference speaker for the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization and Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. As a survivor of this often fatal asbestos disease, she considers herself to be a “poster child for hope after mesothelioma.” Learn more at http://Mesothelioma.com Camp Kesem Heather strongly recommends that kids whose parents are undergoing cancer treatment spend time around other kids who are going through the same thing.

What should you say to parents whose children have cancer?
When speaking to the parents of children who have cancer, try not to say things that minimize their trauma or distress. "Instead, assure them, 'I'm with you. I see you're suffering. If you want to talk about it, I'm here.' Remember that your presence and support speaks volumes more than any words," says Jeanelle Folbrecht, Ph.D., director of Psychology, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology in the Department of Supportive Care Medicine at City of Hope. ############################ City of Hope is a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

The way to get the best treatments for children is through research designed specifically for them.

Cancer Survivor Becomes Ambassador for Hope
Hi! My name is Ashley Burnette. I live in Raleigh, NC, I am 11 years old and I'm in the 6th grade. I am proud to say that I am a cancer survivor. On August 27th of 2010, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma and later was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I went through many battles that have led to me being able to say that I am CANCER FREE, but that isn't a short story to tell. I have gone through a lot to gain that title and I realize it’s a blessing that I'm able to hold that title. My goal in life is to be someone that will make a difference in this world and someone that will be remembered for doing so. I hope to be a role model for many kids battling cancer and to encourage all of them to keep fighting. When I was going through treatment, I was asked to be a Patient Ambassador for the NC Children’s Hospital and I was able to share stories from my journey with lots of people. In 2014, I was chosen to be the 2014-2015 National Youth Ambassador for Hyundai Hope On Wheels, which is one of the leading funders for pediatric cancer research in the US. As their ambassador, I get to travel around the country to lots of children’s hospitals and share my message of hope to other kids and families battling cancer. I really enjoy public speaking and hope that when other kids see how I fought a hard battle and made it through, that they too will never give up! During my treatment, I made lots of friends who were also battling cancer. Unfortunately more than half of those friends didn’t survive. No kid should have to go through the pain of losing one of their best friends to cancer. I felt like I lost a piece of myself when each of them passed. THEY are the reason I need to do all I can to help find a cure for this horrible disease! My hope is that in my lifetime, no other parent will have to hear the words, “Your child has cancer.” My plan is to do all I can to bring awareness to childhood cancer and to help raise money for research so we can end childhood cancer FOREVER!!! Love, Ashley Burnette
