Upcoming: Feb/Mar 2022
The road to survivorship is long, grueling, and traumatic. The entire family is affected by a child’s diagnosis, treatment, and the loss of a childhood imagined. Many cancer families find that support provided during treatment wanes and the transition to survivorship often finds families alone and trying to navigate a new normal. Join families nearing or completed treatment for a workshop supporting life after treatment at our 2-day, 6-hour online Peace Post-Treatment retreat. During our time together over two Saturday mornings, we will share stories, access therapists for strategies to deal with anxiety and PTSD, and create a community of support of families who have “been there.”
