Child Life Services 

These group and one-to-one sessions with our certified child life specialist are designed to offer ideas for coping and the opportunity to share resources and discover new strategies to help kids in isolation navigate their health care journey, while connecting with each other. 

During COVID-19, we are offering child life services via online platforms.

PEER

Our PEER exercise program is designed for kids on or off cancer treatment and for kids with certain hematological diseases. The right prescription for physical activity can help your child develop strength, endurance, coordination and flexibility. Regular exercise helps restore energy levels and improve mental and physical well-being. PEER exercise sessions offer kids the opportunity to be more socially engaged and can improve academic performance.

We know families affected by cancer are familiar with isolation, but with the COVID-19 pandemic the need to isolate has become even more stressful. We are here for you and our volunteers are ready to help! We are temporarily revamping our Cooking and Caring Program to ensure families are supported during this crisis.
