Do you know a child dealing with chronic pain?
While acute pain is our body’s way of letting us know something is wrong, chronic pain is very different, and can persist for months or years.
This eBook shares Megan and her family’s experiences dealing with chronic pain, the struggle to achieve daily activities, and how the family learned to manage and cope with Megan’s pain. This tool is also available as an audiobook with breathing exercises, and as a videobook.
