Children's Program - Puddle Jumpers
Puddle Jumpers is a group-based supportivecare program lead by Christine, our certified Child Life Specialist, for children aged 5 to 13. Each class has therapeutic lesson goals to help your child(ren) cope with a cancer diagnosis. We talk about really tough stuff and then engage in a fun age appropriate themed activity that help improve their understanding of cancer and addresses both their informational and emotional support needs.
