Mission

Tracy's Kids is an art therapy program dedicated to helping young cancer patients and their families cope with the psychological stress and trauma arising from cancer and its treatment. All of our services are provided free of charge with the goal of ensuring that the children and families we serve are emotionally equipped to fight cancer as actively as possible -- and prepared for the time when they are cancer free.

What We Do

Tracy's Kids provides an outlet where sick kids, their siblings and parents feel free to express themselves in ways other than through words and medical jargon. Using art to identify emotions and feelings, patients and their families are empowered by Masters-trained Art Therapists to process and discuss the difficult experiences that come along with cancer. Art Therapy provides an opening through which difficult or painful issues can be explored, released, and ultimately understood.
