CLIMB- Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery

CLIMB is a support program specifically designed for children whose parents are diagnosed with cancer. Through art projects and discussion, this structured program is helpful in normalizing feelings of sadness, anxiety, fear and anger in the children, while improving positive communication between the children and their parents.

CLIMB is a six-week closed group support program for children ages 6 to 12 that meets once a week. Dinner will be provided at the beginning of each session. There is no cost to participate in CLIMB. Facilitators have been specially trained by the Children’s Treehouse Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the emotional support of children who have parents with cancer.

A concurrent parent group also takes place at the same time as CLIMB. It is an educational support group where parents learn and share healthy ways to support their children with coping with a cancer diagnosis in the family.
