If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, you may have concerns about how younger members of your family are coping. Kids’ Club is a monthly group for children or grandchildren (ages 6 to 12) of people in treatment for cancer.
Each session, after enjoying some pizza together, kids and parents will go to separate rooms to talk and make art. Our topics include communicating feelings, building personal strengths, and developing coping skills. At the end, the groups reconnect and have an opportunity to share with one another. We invite everyone to share as much or as little as they feel comfortable.
Although we are brought together by our common experiences with cancer, Kids Club is not a sad or scary place; we have fun! Our goal is to have positive interactions with other families dealing with illness and to learn new ways of expressing and managing feelings. Our facilitators are experienced social workers, counselors, and trained volunteers.
