Sibling's Needs Survey

29 May, 2019

Sibling's Needs Survey

We’re supporting Massey University’s research into the unmet needs of siblings of children with cancer. When a child is diagnosed with cancer the whole family dynamic changes and siblings can feel overlooked and lonely.

There is a lack of research into this topic and it’s important to help us continue our mission to ensure no young person faces cancer alone in New Zealand and that the need for support for siblings is recognised and met.

If you are 16 years old or over and you have a sibling who was diagnosed with cancer, Type 1 diabetes or cystic fibrosis one year ago or longer we’d like to speak to you if you were between 0-17 when your sibling was diagnosed.
