Avoiding Infection While on Treatment for Children’s Cancer

Caregivers can contribute to positive treatment outcomes by helping children with cancer avoid exposure to infections.

Whenever medically advised, children should continue to participate in school and other activities to maintain relationships and build social skills.

This may be hard for caregivers, who may feel more comfortable keeping a child at home to avoid exposure to germs. However, certain precautions can be taken, including hand-washing and covering your cough to keep children healthy during cancer treatment.

This 5 Tips for Staying Healthy While on Treatment for Children’s Cancer video is a great tool for caregivers to view and share with teachers, daycare providers, and coaches.
