My son is currently going through chemotherapy and the doctors and nurses are absolutely amazing. They have dedicated their lives to helping others and seem especially caring when children are the patients. It's so important to find the best doctors when your child is going through such difficult challenges. Picking the right doctor really does make a difference for your child and your own piece of mind.

1. Educate yourself on your child's condition. Be prepared when going to visit your specialist and have questions ready.
2. Breath! As I sit here talking about chemo and hospital visits, I feel my muscles tensing. It's so important as a parent to take some time out for yourself, even if only for a quite bath. Breath and think positive thoughts. Don't forget yourself. I know how easy it is to put children before myself (I think we do it most of the time), so do something for you occasionally.
I am amazed at how my the Hospital for Special Surgery does for the pediatric field, treating approximately 20,000 children in 2011! Finding a place dedicated to children, with doctors who do their best each and every day to help others, just warms my heart. Be sure to watch the video
above to learn more about the Hospital for Special Surgery.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Hospital for Special Surgery. A small donation to a charity of my choice was made in my name as a thank you for participating. You should consult with your physician or other health care provider before beginning any rehabilitation/therapy, sports training, or exercise program.
