Our Clubhouse, in partnership with Passavant Hospital Foundation and UPMC CancerCenter UPMC Passavant, will offer a presentation for education, healthcare and other professionals on Tackling Tough Topics: Talking to children and teens about illness and death. When cancer or any life threatening illness happens, the entire family is impacted. Children and teens of adults with cancer are often left with many questions, concerns and stressors. Parents often look to professionals for help to support and prepare their children.

Krista Burgbacher, MS, CCLS from Our Clubhouse will discuss the developmental aspects of illness and ways professionals can support families with children and teens when an adult has a life threatening illness.
