Addressing the needs of your child and your family
It's hard for children to deal with a chronic, life-threatening or life-limiting illness. It isn’t easy for their families and friends, either. This is why we started KU Kids Healing Place. It's a program that starts at the time of diagnosis. It addresses your family’s long-term educational, social, psychological, spiritual and financial needs.
Through our Connected Kansas Kids talks, children can be the experts as they discuss their disease and treatment. Teachers, classmates, friends, family and neighbors are invited to these talks. We can present them in person or on the phone. Everyone can ask questions and share information with a cancer specialist. These talks take the mystery out of your child's disease, and they teach people about your child’s experience.
