What About Us? is a free program that meets for 1/2 day on a Saturday.

Learn More About This Children's Group, What About Us?

The children’s group is facilitated by social workers with special training in cancer counseling. The children participate in activities and projects designed to help them understand and express their feelings.

This group will:

  1. Increase the child’s ability to understand and express feelings about their loved one’s cancer
  2. Teach the child how to communicate those feelings
  3. Help facilitate coping with those feelings

At the end of each session the children participate in yoga giving the social workers the opportunity to meet with the parents.
