It is imperative that we treat these children and their grief with extra love, hugs, honesty and respect.

Alicia Coppola

It is all too often, unfortunate and sad that the children of a sick parent become collateral damage. This is not due to neglectful parenting or lack of love. Neither the children nor the parents are to blame. The disease is to blame. For it is what robs our children of the childhood innocence and the security they deserve.
