What is Cancer?

Many kids who have a parent or sibling diagnosed with cancer don’t really understand what it means- they just know it’s bad news. They see parents crying, doctors fighting, and relatives flying in.

Cancer is an abnormal cell growth in a part of a body (or parts of a body) that are growing rapidly. Cancer can be found in any part of your body, even in your blood. However, there are ways to treat cancer- like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
