A cancer diagnosis impacts the whole family, and for a parent diagnosed with cancer, there is additional stress regarding how to help their child cope. Cancer CAREpoint offers two programs designed to help parents and their child communicate and cope with the diagnosis.

Proper nutrition can help cancer patients with recovery, vitality and quality of life. Cancer CAREpoint’s classes deliver information about the best nutrition during and after treatment, and provide recipes and information about how eating well can make a difference in your health.
