CLIMB® (Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery)
CLIMB® is a six-week closed group support program for children ages 6 to 12 that meets once a week for two hours. 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.
Limited space is available. Pre-Screening and Pre-Registration are required. If interested in participating in a future CLIMB® program please contact Kelly at 480-340-4013.
