Start the Conversation.
CLIMB at Mayo Clinic: Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery is a supportive educational program designed to teach children how to cope when a parent or grandparent they love has cancer. CLIMB is a researched-based program that is structured to include creative self-expression, art making, and discussion to help normalize feelings of sadness, anxiety, fear and anger, and nurture positive communication between the child and their adult loved one with cancer. Children will learn that they are not alone and will meet other children with similar experiences.
A companion support group teaches adults how to respond to feelings their children express, and provides strategies to help them and their children navigate their emotions throughout the cancer process.
A complimentary, kid-friendly, family-style meal will be shared at the start of each session.
The CLIMB program is offered at no cost to participants. For more information about this free program, please contact Autumn Jones, MSW, LCSW, at 904-953-6831.
