Children, Teen and Family

Cancer Support Community / Get Support  / Programs / Children, Teen and Family

Here is an opportunity for school-age children and teens, who have cancer or someone in their family with cancer, to come together with other kids who have shared experiences. Through art and play activities they will explore thoughts, feelings and questions about life when a loved one has cancer.

School-aged children participate in activities and games for stress relief and social interaction while relatives attend evening programs.

Family Book Club

For children, ages 4-17, with a family member or friend with cancer (in treatment or post-treatment), or for children who, themselves, have cancer. The entire family can meet others in similar circumstances and learn skills to cope when cancer is in their lives.

What Do I Tell The Kids?

This workshop provides families with information about a child’s general understanding of cancer, ways to talk to them about cancer, some common behaviors that may be seen in children, and ways to support young family members in the family through this experience.
