Parenting a sick child, what can help

From Nine To Noon, 11:22 am on 4 July 2019

The past nine months have been a rollercoaster of emotions and change for Ashburton parents, Jo and Deane Taylor.

Last year their 13 year old son Tom, was diagnosed with stage 4 hodgkin lymphoma.

They talk to Lynn about the realities and practicalities of looking after a sick child, the effect it has on family dynamics, and the sorts of things that can make a tough and worrying situation a little easier to bear.
