Welcome to Penn State Hershey Nursing Community
Rena Kass M.D. and Michelle Farnan submitted a grant application to the American Cancer Society and were awarded $30,000 to bring the CLIMB(Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery) program to Penn State Hershey. CLIMB (Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery) is a free, six-week program designed to help children cope when someone they love has cancer. Each week, the child attends a session focusing on a select topic and related craft project. The child's loved ones are welcomed into a support group at the same time. The program increases their understanding of cancer and its treatment, as well as allows children to form new friendships and bonds with others going through the very same thing.
