A fun and informative program for middle and high school age kids.
Our kids support groups are facilitated by licensed clinicians and provide a safe environment for kids to share their feelings. These groups are structured around providing age appropriate cancer information, learning relaxation and coping skills, as well as building support through creative art and play. They are scheduled at the same time as the adult support groups, so that comprehensive support can be provided to the whole family.
