Almost 3 million children in the United States have a parent who is living with or has survived cancer.
A first-of-its-kind initiative between three Texas organizations looks to help young people handle a parent's serious medical diagnosis and provide support for families coping with a life-changing illness.
In addition to hosting community events in a therapeutic space, individual or group counseling and services like parenting workshops and training will be offered in both English and Spanish at no cost to families affected.
