No family expects a child to be diagnosed with a life threatening illness, and once the diagnosis has been made the entire family’s reality changes. The new family dynamic often strains the relationships of parents with their children and of siblings with each other. Families often become isolated, limiting their movements to the proposed treatment plan.
Family Focus aims to alleviate these challenges by offering families a chance to rebuild their relationships and meet other families experiencing similar circumstances. The weekend is filled with activities, focusing on the entire family enjoying a day of fun, where illnesses are forgotten.
Here relationships are built, friendships are formed and an escape from the hospital and its associated worries is achieved.
