Families Connected

Appointment New Patient Appointment or 214-645-8300

Families Connected is a quarterly support program designed to help patients and their school-aged children adjust to the changes that occur when a parent has cancer, by helping them connect with other families. 

Made possible by the Dwight Powell Children and Family Support Fund, each Families Connected event has a unique theme. All events include music therapy, arts and crafts, and pet therapy.

For more information on how you can support a child coping with a parent’s cancer diagnosis, visit our Dwight Powell Children and Family Support Fund page or contact Alex Huffman, Manager of Support Services at scccsupport@utsouthwestern.edu or 214-645-2742.

Movie Night

We invite you and your school-age children to join our Support Services team for a night of connection and a movie on Saturday, July 30.

Each child will receive a new backpack and school supplies.
