Cancer and Hematology Center Preparing Your Child for Their First Visit

The hospital can be a scary place for a child, especially when they know that they are going to see the doctor. Children may be frightened, scared, sad, upset, and nervous, much like mom and dad may be. Before visiting our clinic, you may wish to read A Child's Guide with your son or daughter. This picture book was created to help small children learn about what to expect. By showing them the clinic before they come, your child may feel less scared when they see all the fun activities that they can do, even if it is while waiting for the doctor.
