THE PEDIATRIC ONCOLOGY PROGRAM
Cancer Support Community Greater Miami (CSCGM) is proud to introduce our new Pediatric Oncology Pilot Program, presented by Carnival Foundation. Please follow the CHILDREN & TEENS PROGRAMS link on this page for the latest information on our new and exciting programs beginning with our currently established monthly Family Networking Group, taking place on the third Saturday of every month.
1. Help children with cancer process feelings, adapt to stress of their illness, skill build and learn through age-appropriate interventions including therapeutic play.
2. Give well siblings an opportunity for safe expression regarding how cancer has affected them by providing developmentally appropriate support for their needs.
3. Help parents address their own emotional needs so they can better manage the tasks of parenting a child with cancer.
4. Provide schools with information and resources for responding to the needs of children and their families living with cancer.
