The START Center Partners With Wonders & Worries To Help Patients Coping with Cancer Talk to Their Children

The START Center for Cancer Care partnered with Wonders and Worries, a non-profit organization that helps parents with life-threatening illnesses provide support to their children, to open a new office at the START Centers’ San Antonio facility on July 14, 2017.

The Wonders & Worries organization, in conjunction with The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas (CBCST), provides professional support for children through a parent’s illness, as well as resources, support and discussion help to parents. Child Life Specialists (CCLS) offer professional support, activities and a safe environment for children to express their feelings. At Wonders & Worries, children will:

  • Gain age-appropriate understanding of their parent’s illness, treatment and side effects
  • Experience opportunities to express their feelings related to the changes in their family
  • Learn resiliency and coping skills that will serve them for a lifetime
