What/Who is ALL-kids?

"ALL-kids" is an Internet email list, often called a listserve. The subscribers to the ALL-kids list are parents and caregivers of children who have been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, or ALL. The parents/caregivers discuss all aspects of treatment for ALL, thus providing all members a wealth of knowledge about this rare disease. Parents also openly and freely discuss the social, psychological, and emotional impacts of being a "Cancer Parent".

Most of the active listmembers have children currently in treatment for ALL, although a good number of parents whose children have gone off treatment remain on the list to lend experience and encouragement to new members. Some parents on the list lost their children to ALL; these parents, too, remain on the list for the community and to help other parents.
