Support Groups

This is a great time to meet face to face to discuss your particular issues. Licensed therapists guide our support groups to help kids share their feelings and gain strength from one another. Group meetings are also a time to learn the facts of cancer. Therapists are trained  in oncology knowledge and answer questions like, “What is Cancer? What is Chemo? Is cancer contagious?” Serious topics…serious answers.

Youth Leadership Training

Each year we have a 3 day Youth Leadership Training hosted in Southern California. Here, the Youth Leaders learn basic therapeutic skills like “active listening”, answer cancer related questions, and develop supportive relationships with children in need. The training is also a time for the teens to look into their own experience with their parent’s cancer and how it has shaped them into the person they are today. Sign-up now.

Teen Camp

Teen camp is for those between 13 and 18 and provides a fun atmosphere and an opportunity to share and connect with other peers and adults who understand what they are dealing with. To learn more about upcoming camps, contact the Kids Konnected Office

Care Packages

Our Hope the Bear Care Packages are individually tailored to each family based on the information we receive. Every package includes a “Hope” teddy bear for each child in the family, books, workbooks, brochures, and additional information to help the family better cope with cancer.  Our volunteers make security blankets for those under 4, and special bereavement packages for children and teens that have a parent with cancer or who have lost a parent to cancer. Donate a package to a child of our choosing, or order a package for a child you know who is coping with cancer.

...how Kids Konnected helps:

At Kids Konnected, we know that cancer affects the entire family. Each of your children will experience your diagnosis in a different way and with different feelings. Cancer is not an easy subject to talk about and many parents try to avoid the topic in fear that they will scare their children. At Kids Konnected, our approach is to provide a supportive environment to the children so that they can share their feelings alongside other children going through the same thing. We provide free services such as support groups, summer camps, education, and fun events that allow the children to have a break from their parents cancer diagnosis. Learn More
