Kids Konnected Family Event

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Hult Center for Healthy Living – Hauser Hall

Supper: 5:30p – 6:00p

Painting Party 6:00p – 8:00p

 

This is a free family event for children and teens whose lives have been affected by a parent, grandparent, or significant caregiver with a past or present cancer diagnosis.

 

Cancer does not just touch the person with the diagnosis, but rather the whole family. Family members–both immediate and extended–are often the first people we turn to for emotional and practical support when life gets tough. What is  better reminder of that support than to have a family tree on the wall at home! Under the guidance of instructor Teresa Bassett, owner and founder of Canvas Connections, each family will work together to paint a picture of their family tree. No prior art experience necessary!

 

Supper will be available from 5:30 – 6:00 pm.

 

To reserve your spot or for more information, please call Greta at 309-672-5785 or email at gretchen.whittemore@unitypoint.org.

 

 

 

Kids Konnected is a support group for kids and teens that meets under the leadership of professionals to provide support, friendship, and education to children and teens whose parents, grandparents, or caregivers have or had cancer.
