Medical issues strike every family, and cancer certainly impacts every member. Fortunately for local children, there’s an organization that understands they benefit from support during a very difficult time.
On Belay believes children who are in a family threatened by cancer are at risk. They are at risk socially, developmentally, academically, and emotionally. The programs at On Belay allow children to join and build a community among other youth who have or have had a family member with cancer through adventure based programs that encourage participants to uncover their inner resilience.
Such a great idea – play games, have fun, learn to climb and to belay, while in a supportive and caring environment during such a tough time. Best of all, participants can return to as many programs as they wish. They are never turned away because of a change in their family member’s treatment.
Our company supports the work of On Belay throughout the year because of the value and support they provide to the children of New Hampshire. If you’d like more information about this wonderful organization, you’ll find them online here: On Belay.
