Early Warning Booklet
Over the years, we have encountered so many patients, parents, loved ones and carers who all tell the same story… something not quite right with their child, physical and behavioural abnormalities, a bad gut-feeling about persistent complaints. Reassurances or dismissals of symptoms leading to misdiagnoses, lost time and the nagging sense of “if only we’d known and acted earlier”. Awareness and early diagnosis of childhood cancer or leukaemia are everything. Swift action can give adults and children a head-start against these cruel diseases and a fighting chance of survival.
In October 2015, we compiled an Early Warning booklet with patients and families sharing their stories with us, stories of heart-breaking diagnosis and traumatic treatment. We have been circulating this booklet ever since as a vital tool and resource to raise awareness around this topic. In 2020 we launched the updated 2nd edition.
