Support Groups-Children

Gatherings for children and teens who are ill themselves, as well as youths who are impacted by the illness of others.

This foundation is dedicated to empowering children, teens and families as a whole while they cope with the emotional trials of both chronic and terminal illness. Site includes "Starbright World", an online community specifically for teens (patients or siblings) with celebrity chat events. In addition, the website has animated presentations and interactive games that help educate children about blood tests, IVs, chemo, managing asthma, etc. Other whole family resources available through this organization include "Great Escape" vacations and a "Share Your Story" feature on the website.
