Wonders & Worries provides free, professional support for children and teenagers through a parent’s serious illness.
Wonders & Worries ensures that children and teenagers can reach their full potential, despite a parent’s serious illness.
Parents often wish to protect their children, and unsure what to say, they say nothing at all. In turn, children are incredibly perceptive and pick up on the clues in the home that something is wrong. Wonders and Worries' professional child life staff provide tools for families to build a solid foundation of communication to successfully cope.
In 2001, the Livestrong Foundation provided funding for Meredith Cooper, MS, CCLS, LPC and Melissa Hicks, MS, CCLS, LPC, RPT to start a pilot group to support children of families dealing with cancer. In August 2001, Wonders & Worries became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
