It’s All About You

It’s All About You is a non-medical program focusing on health and wellness for children, teens, siblings, and parents affected by childhood cancer. Recognizing that wellness and feeling good involve positively affecting the mind, body, and spirit, this initiative focuses on ways to increase knowledge, build self-esteem, learn positive coping skills, develop relationships with others who have similar experiences, and have fun in a relaxed and encouraging environment.

Each program runs approximately two hours with 4 – 5 pre-planned interactive stations to encourage hands-on learning. Activities may include age appropriate games, crafts, surprise guests, and creative projects to learn about nutrition, exercise, relaxation, and more. Light refreshments and give-aways for all participants wrap up these fun sessions.

While all patients and family members are always welcome, sessions may be directed to a general audience or a subgroup such as teens, young adults, or siblings. Participants may be at any point on their cancer journey from diagnosis through long term survivorship. Inpatient sessions are scheduled regularly at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Cardon Children’s Medical Center. Outpatient sessions are hosted at Children’s Cancer Network Office and Family Resource Center in Chandler as well as at a variety of locations throughout the Valley.
