The main heading of this forum, "My child is Sick" is really an oxymoron in itself. I2Y's demographic is Young Adults, 15-40. I can understand a 15-19 year old still being a child, but, after that, yea they become adults somewhere. My son Jared was dx'd this past June, he was 20 (turning 21 in a couple of weeks). I remember coming home from work one day in July, finding Jared on the couch curled up on the couch, feeling like absolute crap from a mega dose of chemo. I sat down next to him, and he shifted his body so he can put his head in my lap and looked at me. He was no longer this 175 lb, 5'11" mass of muscles, in my eyes he was once again a little curly headed little boy looking at his dad for pleading for help. And with that life came in focus. I finally understood why, as a man of 52, my mother at times talks to me like I'm 12. It doesn't matter whether your child is 15,20,30,40 or even 52 in a parent's eye, they're still little children needing mommy and daddy to help them, comfort them, protect them.
