Counseling

CURE Childhood Cancer recognizes the impact that a childhood cancer diagnosis can have on the whole family. CURE’s Counseling Program helps address the unique psychological needs of families affected by childhood cancer. CURE’s family-centered approach to addressing these unique experiences includes partnering with a network of licensed community-based therapists to offer counseling sessions to CURE families.

CURE’s Counseling Program Guidelines

A family’s circumstances must include one of the following to be considered eligible to receive support through CURE’s Counseling Program: a child diagnosed with, relapsed with, or passed away from cancer, LCH, HLH, or aplastic anemia.

CURE provides sessions for the patient, parent, or sibling of eligible families. The first session is free; for each session thereafter, the family will pay the therapist directly a $25.00 co-pay per session. Sessions may be used in any combination to best support the family’s needs: individual counseling, couples counseling, family counseling, etc.  The sessions are considered a once-per-lifetime benefit and do not renew.

“I cannot tell you how relieved I am and in the same sense, excited to finally be able to address the emotional and behavioral turmoil that we have all been suffering through for years now. It’s gotten increasingly bad in leaps and bounds over the course of the past year or so and I cannot begin to express how much hope just setting up a therapy appointment has begun to restore.”
