Parents, relatives and children must learn to live with the disease and above all, try to adapt the everyday existence on the basis of the new conditions that comes with the disease. To make this adaptation possible, the healthcare contributes with important knowledge and care, especially during the diseases debut.

A qualitative method and a phenomenographic approach were used in order to describe variations and ways of experience at the nurses. Data collection occurred during interviews.
