70% of mental health problems have their onset during childhood or adolescence
When a parent is diagnosed with cancer children often feel lost and confused. They may think they have done something wrong and have trouble expressing how they feel. That’s where we come in. Our team of Child Life Specialists and trained volunteer angels deliver programs to help children understand your cancer journey and build emotional resilience.
Our programs provide the critical intervention children need to understand their parents’ cancer
Our Child Life focused programs help kids cope with the trauma of parental cancer by providing a sense of normalcy during an unfamiliar time. Nankind’s Program for Children takes this approach and our volunteer angels deliver their impact.
Your support helps to build a community of volunteers that empower children
Our angel volunteers build children’s social and emotional resilience, while giving their parents with cancer time back to focus on their well-being.
