                   CLIMB

Helping kids and families cope with cancer.

What is CLIMB?

CLIMB is a unique, free program at the Sacred Heart Cancer Center, created to provide emotional support for children who have a parent with cancer. The CLIMB program is held on Tuesday nights for six consecutive weeks. During the group meetings, conversation and art are used to help children identify and appropriately express complex feelings related to having a parent with cancer.

The program was developed by The Children's Treehouse Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the emotional support of children whose parents have cancer.

Who is eligible for CLIMB and how do we enroll?

Children, ages 6-12, which have a parent with cancer, are eligible to enroll. Groups are held at various times throughout the year.

What is the goal of CLIMB?

Children will learn:

  • that cancer is "not their fault"
  • they are not alone
  • coping strategies
  • about cancer and treatment options
  • how to express their feelings
  • how to manage anger
  • to communicate better with the parent with cancer

For more information about the CLIMB program or to enroll a child, please contact Jeanie Sherman or Blair Edgar, Sacred Heart Cancer Center Social Workers at (850) 416-2679. Registration is required.
