Kid and Teen Support
This series is for kids or teenagers who have a parent or loved one with cancer (either in treatment or post treatment), or for children who have cancer themselves. This group is divided by age offering children ages 4-18 an opportunity to make friends and learn skills to help them when cancer is in their lives. Each week kids and teens explore various topics related to cancer through age appropriate activities and play. The parent group is held separately to offer support around parenting when cancer is part of life.
