Walk With Sally

  • 9 people are interested

Walk With Sally provides hope through our individualized mentoring and community support services to empower children experiencing trauma through a parent, guardian or sibling's cancer journey. These children are matched with a trained adult volunteer who has walked in their shoes. Children ages 7-17 are matched with a mentor who completes all necessary requirements and commit to being matched for a minimum of one year and meet 6-8 hours per month. Once matched, Walk With Sally provides year-round programming designed to help each matched relationship flourish and create a sense of community for the children and their families. By creating quality long term mentorships, or Friendships, within a larger extended community, Walk With Sally is able to support each child and family during one of their toughest and most traumatic times. The goal is to help each child by promoting positive life choices, healthy communication skills and a deeper sense of self.

When Cancer hits the family it changes everything, especially for the child.
