Cancer in Children and Teens
Dr. Adrian Cristian
Adrian Cristian, Physiatrist at Miami Cancer Institute, says a young child with a diagnosis of cancer has their entire life turned upside down and it could affect their school, their relationship with friends and siblings.
"It's a very stressful time for both the child and the family as a whole and the role of the rehab team in the care of such individual is really to team approach, holistic approach to that person", he explains.
The team of specialist should be working to see how can they get the child back to school or certain hobbies or the most similar to a normal life.
