Saturday, May 10, 2014 - Fort Edmonton Park
The Family conference is a time for families to gain valuable, relevant and timely information about the different stages of childhood cancer treatment: diagnosis, treatment and post treatment. Families will have the opportunity to share their journey with one another as well as to learn from, and interact with specialists in the field of pediatric oncology. It is the goal of the Kids with Cancer Society to give families information, tools and resources to not only cope, but to thrive. Supervised children’s and teens activities are also included, providing a unique and fun experience for children with cancer and their sibling while parents and caregivers attend the information sessions.
More information and how to register will be provided in winter 2014.
