Hi Doc,my 1 month old daugther has been diagnosed with brain tumor, she''s lying in hospital awaiting chemotheraphy,she never went home she has been admitted since she was born on th 6th of AUGUST would u please advise on the types of counselling i can atend as im depressed by her situation, im trying to be strong but this thing is killing me. When i look at her i just blame myself because i just cant understand why my child can be born with such a terrible disease. The doctors said they dont know the cause and that this things just happen, Please help i am so devastated especially when i hear of how chemotherapy and radiation do to patients and the stories of how people who go through those therapies never make it.
