Mythbusting: Non-Cancer Illnesses

Sometimes people think we only work with families with a cancer diagnosis. Not so!

While we do support kids when a parent faces cancer, Wonders & Worries also works with families who have a parent with ANY serious physical illness.

A partial list of non-cancer diagnoses we’ve worked with includes:

  • ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease
  • Heart disease
  • Auto immune disorders like Lupus, Crohn’s and Lyme disease
  • Organ transplants
  • Neurological disorders
  • Connective tissue diseases like Ehlers-Danlos syndrome
  • Diabetes
  • Paralysis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Chronic pain, including fibromyalgia and rheumatism
