CLIMB™ - Children’s Lives Include Moments of BraveryToggle accordion item
There may be nothing more frightening to a child than learning his or her parent or family member has cancer. Kids often lack many of the coping skills that come with adulthood and can experience a wide range of emotions.
Created by The Children's Treehouse Foundation®, Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery (CLIMB) is a free support program designed to help children cope when a family member has cancer. By creating a safe setting where kids can express their fears, concerns and questions, CLIMB helps children to be able to take comfort in knowing that they are never alone. It is designed to be fun and interactive for kids and reassuring for parents.

Yoga is a form of exercise that involves movement through different postures to build strength, improve balance and release tightness and tension in both the body and mind. It offers benefits for side effects that current and post-treatment patients experience, including fatigue, neuropathy, pain, loss of mobility and bone loss. Breathing techniques assist in calming the nervous system, easing anxiety and relaxing the body. Following a flow, students finish with a guided visualization or meditation.
Cancer LifeNet offers two levels of yoga classes. Level 1 is ideal for students new to the practice or seeking a gentler flow. Level 2 is designed for students who have greater range of motion and are comfortable moving in a variety of ways on the floor and in standing postures. Modifications will be offered in both classes to best meet the needs of students in attendance.
