If you are the parent of a child with cancer, the overwhelming multitude of questions, feelings, and associated anxieties are hard to contain. What caused cancer? What can you as, a parent, do to help your child live through it? What is the future for your child?
John Poothullil, MD, FRCP, practiced medicine as a pediatrician and allergist for more than 30 years. He began his practice in 1974 and retired in 2008. He holds certifications from the American Board of Pediatrics, The American Board of Allergy & Immunology, and the Canadian Board of Pediatrics.
Dr. John’s latest book, “When Your Child Has Cancer,” is an insightful and thoughtful look at hope, advice, and solace. He expertly guides you to understand childhood cancer. He starts with his two new scientific theories to explain how the leading types of childhood cancers might occur, given that children have not lived long enough to develop the number of gene mutations that usually cause adult cancers.
You will learn how you, as parents, can care for your child with cancer with understanding and sensitivity, creating a loving home environment full of communal activities to reduce everyone’s stress and worry. Most importantly, Dr. John explains why your child’s diet can be a crucial corollary element in controlling cancer and medical treatments. You will learn how a diet low in grains and grain-flour products slows cancer cell growth, giving your child’s immune system a better chance to contain it.
