Review for The Childrens Treehouse Foundation, Lakewood, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a co-facilitator of the CLIMB program at our cancer center I can give high praise for this fine program. We have completed ten sessions since 2009 and have 'graduated' over 50 children. The Children's Treehouse Foundation has done an excellent job in developing this program and the training and ongoing support they provide makes it easy to implement.

We have had the opportunity to work with many brave children who have a parent or other loved one with cancer. In CLIMB, the children learn about cancer and healthy ways to deal with the complex feelings that come with a cancer diagnosis. Communication at home is improved and the children make friends with others in a similar situation. Feedback we have received from the children and their families has been overwhelmingly positive. CLIMB is an amazing program and is helping families in ways that will last a lifetime.

I wouldn't change a thing.
