Abstract (Summary)

Recent reports indicate youth ages 0-14 are experiencing greater numbers of cancer diagnosis. The purpose of this project is to develop a cancer support group program for children and adolescents ages 6-17 that are diagnosed with cancer. This support group will be enhanced with a dance/movement component. This project will identify a potential funding source to establish this unique pilot intervention and will be located in the City of Whittier's Intercommunity Child Guidance Center. Implications for social work practice are discussed. The Andrea Rizzo Foundation, USA, was the suitable foundation for grant submission. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
