The Heller Center for Kids with Cancer
The Heller Center for Kids with Cancer helps local kids and families live a life beyond cancer. Today, over 80% of kids survive their cancer diagnosis. But they deserve more than survivorship; they deserve to thrive. The Center supports the entire family, helping patients, parents and siblings face the obstacles and trauma a cancer diagnosis creates. It provides critical, non-medical support services to help children complete their education, develop coping skills and grow into adulthood.
