Caring for a Chronically or Terminally Ill Child

Stephanie Lemcke

When a child receives a life limiting diagnoses, how do people cope, and what supports and services are available? On The Point, we discuss how people cope in these most difficult circumstances: treatment options, insurance and finances, school accommodations, and the emotional and physical well-being of the entire family. 

Russ Lemcke is our guest in the Point studio. His 18-year-old daughter died of cancer. He’s written a book about her, and his experience parenting through her illness, titledIf I Could I Would, An Inspiring Story of a Young Girl Who Lived Life to the Fullest. Lindsay Coe, Pediatric Palliative Service Manager throughHope Health, also joins us.
