T1: What are some of the biggest worries when caring for children while in treatment? What worried you most?
T2: Where can patients and caregivers turn to for help? What resources have been most helpful for you or ur patients?
T3: When in the process did you tell children/were you told about the DX? How does age impact timing and content?

T5: Looking back, what would you do differently when parenting during that time of your life? or that you now wish ur parents had done?
