Resources for Children
CancerCare for Kids® provides free, professional support services for parents, children, and adolescents affected by cancer, as well as information about helping children understand cancer and additional resources.
Help with Hope is a support group to the children whose parent has cancer. If you are a parent with cancer and have a child between the ages of 8 and 17, they can attend an online meditation support group with other kids who understand what they are going through, parents are also invited!
Kesem is committed to creating a world where every child who has a parent with a cancer diagnosis or has lost a parent to cancer is never alone. Kesem supports these children through and beyond their parent’s cancer with free, fun-filled creative programs and a lasting community.
