UAMS Program Starting March 31 Offers Support to Children of Cancer Patients

 

LITTLE ROCK – A group to help children ages 6-12 better cope with their parent’s cancer diagnosis is set to begin March 31 at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS).

CLIMB, which stands for Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery, will be offered from 5-7 p.m. Tuesdays from March 31-May 5 at the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.

There is no cost to participate, and pre-registration is required. To register, call Carrie Calhoon at (501) 603-1612.

CLIMB is a dual program, designed to support both children and their parents at the same time.

While children participate in art and other projects to help them process emotions such as sadness, anxiety and fear, their parents meet separately to discuss ways to support their children throughout their illness.

Oncology social workers lead both the children’s group and parents’ group. Siblings are welcome to attend together.

CLIMB is a national program sponsored by The Children’s Treehouse Foundation.
