  • Draw out your child’s feelings and concerns.
  • Support your child and decrease stress related to your cancer.
  • “She didn’t really talk about it. Maybe that’s because she didn’t know how to put it into words,” Parent of a 9-year old.

This free, two-hour workshop will cover the latest treatments for lung cancer.
