Comfort and support when a parent is ill
For a child whose parent or sibling is seriously ill, our KidsCan! support group offers understanding, comfort, and the assurance that they’re not alone. Your gift gives young children and teens from 6 to 18 the warmth and acceptance they need in a very special program that helps 75 children each year.
KidsCan! becomes a reassuring place where children and families find understanding and the strategies to cope with their emotions. Art, music, games, and other activities promote group discussion. To serve the different needs of family members, KidsCan! offers four unique support sessions simultaneously in separate spaces for children, teens, adults facing cancer, and the adults supporting the family member who is ill.
When you give to this program, you join in a collaborative effort between Rex and a generous grant from the Holt Brothers Foundation.
