The Samaritan Cancer Program is offering a support group for children ages 9 through 12 who have a parent, grandparent or primary caregiver with cancer. The group will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays, Oct. 1 through Nov. 5, at the Samaritan Cancer Resource Center in North Albany.

Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery — or CLIMB — is an internationally acclaimed program created by The Children’s Treehouse Foundation.

Dinner will be provided and children will spend the session mostly in art therapy. Their parents and grandparents can be in the room next door, or they may leave and pick up their child or children at the end of each session.

There is no cost for the program, but parents do need to pre-registrater by calling 541-812-5888.
