For Support

FOR SUPPORT

Having a diagnosis of cancer is life-changing, and often causes anxiety and feelings of isolation. Having a place to go for support can make a world of difference in your life. The Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center offers support to individuals and families dealing with this disease.

WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK — FAMILY CANCER SUPPORT
Individualized services provided to children with either a parent or sibling undergoing cancer treatment. When your family is in need, “We’ve Got Your Back”. Open to families in the Town of North Hempstead. Funded in part by Go With Courage and Sid Jacobson JCC’s New Leadership Group.

WE’VE GOT YOUR BACK — AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
Designed for children ages 5-12 whose parent or sibling has a cancer diagnosis. Children are given the opportunity to share and learn life skills alongside peers who are also facing similar circumstances.

Children will also acquire tools on how to cope with their family member’s cancer diagnosis. An intake is required.
