Executive Director Message

StuartKlein.pngApprehension. Fear. Uncertainty. These are common feelings for patients and their families, whether they live nearby or are far from home. Easing anxiety can improve patients’ and caregivers’ ability to cope with treatment. It is why we have intentionally created opportunities for people to participate in healthy activities that relieve stress such as art projects, yoga and social gatherings. I invite you to read in this issue about one patient’s experience overcoming fear and also about a research study that analyzes the experience of pediatric patients and their families from the United Kingdom.
