iCarly star Jennette McCurdy took a very brave step recently when she wrote an essay for the Wall Street Journal about her mom’s fight with cancer and how it is affecting her.
The essay was posted today, June 11, and truely is amazing!
How it affected her: “I went into a state of shock when I learned her cancer had returned. Of course, I grew up knowing her medical history but I was so young when she was first diagnosed that my age had protected me from really knowing what this meant. But not this time.”
Recommendation for kid’s whose parent or parents have cancer: “If you are a young person struggling with a parent’s cancer, I recommend talking to them as much or as little as they are able. You don’t want to make your parent uncomfortable, but give them the chance to say everything they feel they need to say. Sometimes, parents can have a difficult time judging just how much
information you may or may not want to know. After all, you are their child, and
parents always put their children’s emotions before their own.”
This really is a very brave thing Jennette did and I for one praise her!
