Please support Friends Like Me, which is a year round program that focuses on helping children who have a parent, grandparent, sibling or other family member with cancer. The program is complimentary and combines art and music therapy with counseling, enabling children to express their emotions related to how their lives have been impacted by cancer. The program gives children a voice in their struggle with cancer in the family and a caring, supportive environment where they can communicate their feelings. The program is open to all children, not just those with loved ones being treated at Karmanos. Friends Like Me helps children find comfort and hope as they navigate the impact of cancer in their young lives.
