Founded in January of 2001* in Denver, Colorado, we are the nation’s only organization providing group-based, manualized and internationally delivered, psychosocial intervention developed specifically to support the emotional needs of children with a parent or caregiver who has cancer. This often overlooked aspect of cancer treatment now has a program that kids, parents and oncology professionals all rave about, the CLIMB® Program.

Did you have a parent with cancer while you were growing up? Or are you a parent with cancer?The Children’s Treehouse Foundation would like to invite you to share your story on our Facebook Page (videos, photos and text are all encouraged).

Most hospitals and cancer centers have little or no support for children whose parents or grandparents have cancer. It’s heartbreaking. We would like to change that. And your story is the key to making sure cancer-focused, psychosocial programs such as CLIMB® are offered to children when their parent is diagnosed with cancer. Thank you.

* Please share this post and help us find others who might want to tell their brave stories.

The Beneficiaries of Our Program


Family Support

With the help of the group-support program, the family’s burden of dealing with cancer, and the inevitable stress, is significantly reduced.

Professional Training

We provide cancer center oncology support professionals the tools they need to conduct ongoing support programs for the children whose parents have cancer.

Our Children

Our program, CLIMB®, helps to normalize feelings of sadness, anxiety, fear and anger of the children, while stimulating improved communication between the children and the parents.
