Some kids - just like some adults - are more private than others. That means some people will feel more shy about sharing their feelings. A kid doesn't have to share every feeling he or she has, but it is important to share feelings when a kid needs help. You don't have to solve every problem on your own. Sometimes you need help. And if you do, talking about your feelings can be the first step toward getting it.

Talk to your school counselor. They can help you find answers to questions or find someone who has the answers.
If you are afraid to talk to your mom about the cancer, talk to a friend's mom. She can help you find the right questions to ask your mom.
Ask your parents if you can talk to the doctor. Sometimes it might help getting answers from the person who is taking care of your mom, grandmother, aunt, etc.
