Led by the Department of Social Work at Memorial Sloan Kettering, Talking with Children about Cancer is a program to help support adults receiving cancer treatment as they parent their children and teenagers. We strive to improve family communication and provide assistance during the diagnosis and treatment process. We offer family support groups, individual and group counseling, connections to resources, and guidance for professionals in the community, including school psychologists, teachers, and more.
Social workers at MSK have years of experience in cancer care. We are committed to supporting families through a parent’s cancer treatment.
