Wonders and Worries

Participants have the opportunity to share with their peers and find support among those who are in similar situations.

Wonders and Worries

The group is facilitated by our Child Life Specialist who touches on topics such as: age appropriate cancer education, feelings about having illness in the family, stress, coping strategies, and hopes for the future.  All of these topics are addressed in a fun, friendly manner through games, crafts and other activities.  Our hope is that participants will gain some control over their situation, and feel empowered to deal with their parents’ illness in a positive way.

If you are interested, please contact our Child Life Specialist, Debbie Grenier-Allenby at 613-247-3527 ext. 221 or

An intake appointment with a parent will be scheduled prior to the first session.
