CancerCare for Kids®
Children and teens who are affected by cancer have special needs and concerns. That’s why CancerCare has a special program called CancerCare for Kids®. It’s all part of the free, professional services CancerCare provides, but focused on the particular needs of children and parents.
KIDSCOPE's mission is to help children and families understand the effects of cancer or chemotherapy on a loved one, to provide suggestions for coping, and to develop innovative programs and materials that communicate a message of hope to diverse families coping with this crisis.
Since 2000, Camp Kesem has given children affected by a parent’s cancer the opportunity to just be kids. The ever-expanding Kesem community engages in camp activities like sports, arts and crafts, and drama to give campers a fun-filled week.
Children’s Treehouse Foundation
It’s a given. Cancer affects the entire family. Yet in too many situations, the undeniable psychosocial impact on the children whose parent has cancer goes unattended.
