Happy Saturday Dream Team! Today we would like to share with you the topics that we will focus on this month. As we are now in May [wow-where has time gone??] we want to focus on embracing that summer feel.
Cancer can eliminate a lot of summer routines such as: going to the pool, family vacations or simply soaking in that summer sun. That is why this month we will write on the following:
How to create a “Stay-Cation”
Alternative Summer Activities that are safe + fun for pediatric cancer patients
One of our first topics we would like to introduce is the concept of “Stay-Cation”. A cancer diagnosis can impact your plans on taking a family vacation, that is why we want to help you create a just as fun vacation wherever you are!
Here are some ground rules that are good to set for this at home vacation:
No Electronics [smart phones, computers, tablets etc]
No working from home
Family time only—no independent activities or outside plans
Check back next Saturday for our first “stay-cation” idea!
