We waned to take this Thursday’s Program Resource theme as an opportunity to share with you a signature Teen with a Dream program. Each year Teen with a Dream hand picks themes for the two holiday trees, which provides the many boys and girls undergoing treatment an opportunity to pick out a prize.
For the boy’s tree patients will go back in time and walk with Dinosaurs.. Girls will “Let it Go” and have a Disney inspired “Frozen” tree.
Pediatric cancer patients undergo an average of eight to ten hours of treatment around three to four times a week. Teen with a Dream recognizes how much time cancer steals from their youthful lives. The Giving Tree program is modeled around a core component of their mission and seeks to engage the mind and soul.
