Candlelighters Simcoe understands that the emotional burden of childhood cancer doesn’t just fall on parents and caregivers. Through our art therapy programs, we offer kids the opportunity to work with a qualified art therapist in weekly sessions to address feelings about their own or a sibling’s experience with cancer.
