Perceptions of social support were studied in 67 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia remission. The narrative technique was used and the results were compared with a matched control group. Only half of the children (49%) perceived social support (control group - 88%, p<0.001). Less than one-third (29%) of children perceiving social support expected it to be in the form of physical proximity, verbal and nonverbal tenderness (control group - 68%, p<0.01). This exploratory study provides suggesting direction for further study. It is necessary to continue research to assess social support in the form of tenderness and physical contact reference to children who survived cancer.
