Kids Together Against Cancer. Support for families dealing with a parent's cander journey.
 photo taken by Ingrid Damiani

Time to Register
 for the New 5 week
KTAC Sessions...

As a parent with cancer, one of the hardest things to do when you are diagnosed is talk to your family. 

You may ask yourself, "How much should I tell them? I don't want to scare my children, but I don't want to lie to them either."
·  You may be unclear what your child understands, "My son never says anything to me about my cancer."
·  If you question "Am I going to die from this?", your child may be quietly worried too. 

Kids Together Against Cancer's five week program is child and parent focused in a positive and fun environment. 

Art Educators, from the Cummer Museum of Art, help children create beautiful art projects to help express their feelings.

Licensed Oncology Social Workers guide adult group discussion to help families cope with the cancer diagnosis. 

Dates:       Tuesday January 29th
