Centering the Experience of Black Families – How to Talk to Kids About Cancer

In recognition of Juneteenth, Pickles Group is collaborating with TOUCH, The Black Breast Cancer Alliance, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, Sisters Working it Out, and Zero Prostate Cancer to bring you a live and free webinar + parent panel focused on the unique experiences of Black families parenting with cancer.

Telling kids about a parent or guardian’s cancer diagnosis can be hard. At the same time, research shows that open, age-appropriate conversations with kids about their parent’s illness helps to decrease their worry, stress, and anxiety and promotes their social-emotional wellbeing. Our Chief Clinical Officer, Kelsey Mora, LCPC, CCLS is an expert in supporting families through illness. Register for this webinar to receive a free digital copy of our Pickles Family Support Kit, to learn how to talk to kids about cancer, and to hear from a panel of Black parents and families who share their lived experience talking with kid about cancer.

Please note that all event times are in Central Time.
