Having a child with cancer is one of the most taxing experiences a family can endure. With that in mind, the primary objective of this research was to explore the lived experiences of mothers of children with pediatric cancer during diagnosis, treatment, and the period thereafter. The specific purpose of this article however, was to examine the benefits or positives that emerged from the experience. One-on-one and e-mail semi-structured interviews were completed with 9 mothers of children treated for pediatric cancer. Four of the children had passed away from their illnesses. The subthemes derived for the benefits of the mothers' experiences consisted of: (1) support: importance of family and friends; (2) when life gives you lemons; and (3) finding the silver lining. It is anticipated that the findings from this exploratory research will be used as a source of support for individuals in similar situations and for front-line health care professionals.
