One mom has been helping her daughter deal with her childhood cancer with the unusual method of teaching her to swear at her brain tumor.
When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it can have a devastating effect on their whole family and that's particularly true when the patient is a child.
But through that devastation often comes a feeling of working as a united front. Whatever challenges the disease brings, the family will face it together and will often show their solidarity in powerful ways.
In some cases, that support gives kids the strength they need need to make it through a scary chapter in their lives. And in other cases, it can make a sense of purpose shine through an otherwise hopeless situation.
But while the togetherness we see in the case of one New York family is no exception to this phenomenon, the way they're supporting each other seems just as cathartic as it is unorthodox.
