About Child Life

Child Life is a discipline of psychosocial healthcare that seeks to help children navigate stressful times. Child Life Specialists help children cope with life-changing experiences that can impact a child’s normal developmental path.

A parent’s cancer diagnosis can be a traumatic event in a child’s life, which if unaddressed can lead to a lifetime of issues and unfulfilled dreams. At Nanny Angel Network, our Certified Child Life Specialists develop customized programs for each family that helps kids of all ages navigate the difficult journey of coping with a parent’s cancer diagnosis and treatments, so they can grow up to be healthy, well-adjusted adults.
