Children Die, TooStreaming Video - 2008
No one is ever prepared for a child's death or able to accept it with equanimity, but there are ways to live through this intensely sad experience. This program from The Doctor Is In introduces some people who have felt this pain, and who can offer some suggestions for going through the process. A couple whose three-year-old daughter died suddenly, a teenage girl whose sister died from leukemia, a mother whose six-month-old died from multiple birth defects, and a young woman who has undergone two miscarriages and two stillbirths talk about their experiences. Dr. Sandra Fox of Boston's Good Grief Program discusses how people can help each other after the death of a child. A pediatric oncology nurse explains how a cancer treatment team can help families through a child's terminal diagnosis and treatment. The program also visits an art therapy class for children and talks to the teacher about how children express grief.
