Child, Teen & Family Programs

CSCLA’s Child, Teen and Family (CTF) program provides support for the whole family, including children living with cancer, and youth that have a parent, sibling, or other family member with cancer. We offer a safe and welcoming space for children and teens impacted by cancer to connect, learn coping skills, and have fun. Programs offered include Social Events, Support Groups, Counseling, Educational Workshops, Healthy Lifestyle Classes, and Cancer in the Classroom Presentations and IEP Meetings.
