When talking about a sick child, we immediately think of childhood diseases such as measles, chickenpox or whooping cough. Most of these diseases can be prevented by vaccination and are often benign.
Unfortunately, infants, toddlers and adolescents can also be the victims of serious and/or chronic diseases such as leukemia, Ewing's sarcoma, neuroblastoma, etc. Others may suffer from a birth defect or have Down’s syndrome (Trisomy 21), tetralogy of Fallot, severe congenital neutropenia…
Support for parents for the well-being of children
When a child needs specific care throughout their life or suffers from a serious illness, everyone around them is also impacted by it...The psychological burden of a child's illness is difficult to bear, especially since it is necessary to keep strong and avoid transmitting any anxieties to the young patient.
Carenity aims to provide you with information about these pathologies (motor disorders, mental disorders, treatments, quality of life, medical research...) and to allow you to exchange with relatives of patients in order to obtain support and information. Make your voice heard!
