Facing Cancer Together is March 23

Join the Coborn Cancer Center and ANGEL Foundation from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 23, at the Coborn Cancer Center at CentraCare Health Plaza to learn about communication and coping skills when a parent or grandparent is dealing with cancer diagnosis or treatment. Parents, grandparents, caregivers, teens and children meet in peer groups to participate in age-appropriate activities or discussions to help them cope with the impact of a cancer diagnosis.

The ANGEL Foundation staff has expertise in helping children ages 5-18 manage the fear, stress and uncertainty that comes with a cancer diagnosis in a loved adult. Also, we facilitate an education session for parents and grandparents on communicating about cancer with children and teens. A light meal will be provided. For more information or to register, call (320) 229-5199, ext. 70659. The program is free, but pre-registration is required.
