On Sakhisizwe we had Deirdré Taylor from the organisation My Child Has Cancer Trust, a support group for families with children who are struggling with cancer.
Deirdré told us about the importance of creating a network of mutual support and solidarity amongst families who have experienced or are experienced similar circumstances in order to help them cope better with the difficult reality they are facing.
For instance, the organisation provides support through informative sessions, offering help with everyday life business – such as groceries, picking up the other siblings from school – advice and emotional support.
