For Kids & Teens
Watching mom or dad feeling sick is NOT fun. You probably don't want to worry your parent by asking "why are you so tired?" "why are you not taking me to soccer practice?" "why are you crying mom?" ...."why is this happening.... to me?" These are hard questions.
At Walk With Sally, we GET IT! We understand ALL OF YOUR FEELINGS! ALL OF YOUR DREAMS, HOPES, FEARS, AND NEEDS! So now, what happens when A BIG SISTER OR BIG BROTHER (a special FRIEND) understands EXACTLY how you feel? You feel a sense of relief because you're not alone.
By joining the Walk With Sally Mentoring program, you will have a friend (big brother or big sister) who understands
you because he/she experienced the same suffering with their mom, dad or sibling. Your new mentor will help you answer many questions about why, where, when, what about cancer. Your new mentor will also take you out to HAVE FUN at local amusement parks, beaches, parks, sports games, help with homework, go shopping, museums, eat your favorite foods, or simply talk or play video games, etc... just like friends do.
To sign up and participate in the mentoring program, your parent must complete the mentee application.
KIDSAID is a safe place for kids to help each other deal with grief and loss. It's a place to deal with feelings in an e-mail support group, to share and view artwork and stories, and for parents and kids to ask questions and find answers.
If you have a poem you've written to express your grief
or a memory, please e-mail and the poem is posted.
