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.
