Our true beneficiaries are the families who have participated in our program, the parents who have been given the tools to help their children cope with the confusing and often unaddressed challenges while they deal with their cancer, and the children themselves. We invite you to look at a small sample of the families who have benefited from our services.
Stories from Families Who Benefit From Our Programs

Stories from Professionals
We’re on to something good with the feedback we get from professionals.
In Chattanooga, Tenn, Sam Harris, M. Div, Patient Advocate, Oncology Erlanger Cancer Center, tells us, “I hope folks will be challenged to move in this unique way to reach the children in their communities. We certainly are going to be happy to share our program with others. CLIMB® works!”
At the University of Colorado Cancer Center in Denver, Alison Faust, RN ND CNS, Psychosocial Program Coordinator, reports, “CLIMB® is an opportunity for families to learn better ways to communicate about cancer and to express their feelings with each other. It also shows people that there are other families going through similar situations, which makes the experience less isolating and scary. And best of all, it’s a place where kids can have fun!”
