Friends Like Me Program


Friends Like Me is a year round program that focuses on using art therapy to help children who have a parent, grandparent, sibling or other family member with cancer. The program is complimentary and combines art therapy with counseling, enabling children to express their emotions related to how their lives have been impacted by cancer. The program gives children a voice in their struggle with cancer in the family and a caring, comforting, supportive environment where they can express their feelings through art.
