Monthly Family Gatherings
Families of children who are cancer survivors or are in various stages of treatment are invited to attend our family get-togethers. We meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at the Ronald McDonald House, 850 2nd Street SW, Rochester, Minnesota.
We are grateful to Ronald McDonald Charities, as well as the community, for the provision of meals during the meetings for our participants. A Mayo Clinic Child Life Specialist and a professional Brighter Tomorrows’ Coordinator are on site to provide organized activities for children, while Brighter Tomorrows’ chaperones are available to care for the younger children. Everyone is welcomed!
During our time together, parents are allowed to share with one another in a quiet private setting, while the patient and their siblings get to spend time just being kids in an environment that allows them to share their feelings, as well. Remember, you don’t have to face a childhood cancer diagnosis alone. We invite you to join us.
Please contact us for more information or to RSVP if you would like to attend.
