When Will You Get Better? Helping Children Understand and Cope when a Parent has an Incurable Illness

Date: Wednesday, April 17

Time: 11am PST/12pm MTN/1pm CST/2pm EST


How can you best support your child(ren) when a serious illness can’t be cured? This WonderChat is not about end of life, but is instead about adapting to life when a parent’s illness is chronic and potentially life-limiting. Join other Bright Spot families as we focus on how to talk about it, how to create your family’s new normal and ideas for capturing lasting family memories. We will focus on children of all ages with an emphasis on supporting young children 8 years and younger.

Parents with cancer, partners, loved ones, and cancer care teams are all warmly invited to attend.
