I believe in family-centered care. I feel very strongly that we need to care for not just the children with blood disorders or cancer but their entire family. These diseases affect so many people around them, like ripples in a pond. Parents not only have to care for the child that we see, but also their other children. They do this while they maintain their jobs, their home and their lives.
