Printer-friendly version

Maintaining everyday activities of a healthy lifestyle, including eating, sleeping and exercising, are even more important for a person with cancer. There are also some special considerations, such as when to encourage your child to exercise and when to encourage rest.

The Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service has a good section that deals with everyday issues of eating, mouth and dental care, exercise, fatigue and sleep, dealing with other illnesses, immunisation, pets, going out in the sun (sunsmart) and social media.
