Get help: Assuming your daughter is being treated by a pediatric oncologist, most programs have many specialists to help with this very hard situation. Social workers can be of great help, and child psychologists and palliative care specialists are additional useful resources (in addition to your daughter's oncologist). There is no reason to do this alone.
