[Must-see for parents] What makes childhood cancer survivors the most sad

I was diagnosed with childhood cancer when I was 10 years old.

The type of cancer is osteosarcoma, which is a cancer that develops in the bone and is known as a rare cancer with very few cases.

I had an amputation at the base of my right foot, so my initial surgical plan was to prepare my right foot for amputation from the base.

I myself was asked by my doctor to declare my life expectancy and approve my right leg amputation.

At just 10 years old, I told my doctor that I had amputated my right leg.

In such a background,

As a childhood cancer survivor, there was one of the saddest events for me.

It’s a fight between parents.

My parents have had frequent fights and quarrels since I developed cancer.

I learned that the dispute between my parents was caused by my onset of cancer.

I was very sad

There may have been various backgrounds to the reason why my parents started fighting.


・ My only son, I am facing “death”
Being upset

・ To be unable to do anything in a situation where you cannot escape

・ I couldn’t find a place to hit my anger

・ Financial worries such as surgery and hospitalization costs

・ Anxiety about the future of the only son and the future of the family


It ’s very unfortunate,

This is a normal human sensation, an emotion that anyone can have.


🔷 To pediatric cancer patients

If you are a childhood cancer survivor, you may have such a situation.

However, from a child’s point of view, it may not be possible to compete with such feelings of an adult.

The only thing I can say is

“Don’t feel responsible” for the painful situation from such family discord.


🔷 To parents of cancer patients

Sadness in this situation is even more painful for patients facing cancer.

I would like parents of children who have developed childhood cancer to be careful.

The saddest thing about a childhood cancer survivor is the onset of his own cancer.

The adults around me panicked and

You can be thrown away from escapism

A figure that is rampaging

Is to see.

When faced with such a situation, the patient’s child


・ Blame yourself

・ I hate myself

・ Negatively consider your existence


・ I hate my parents


It may be difficult at first, but stay calm.

The hardest part is the child who faces childhood cancer.

Parents and the adults around them are in a position to provide heartfelt support to the children of childhood cancer survivors.




At the age of 10, one in one million people develops a rare cancer (osteosarcoma).
Cancer notification, amputation of right leg and life expectancy from the attending physician. From my own experience, I would like to convey the hearts of cancer patients, especially children with childhood cancer, to the world.
