The Keaton Raphael Memorial strives to provide all possible resources and information to families and individuals affected by cancer.
We understand how devastating a childhood cancer diagnosis can be on the entire family and have many connections and outlets to assist with their needs. We connect with a number of therapists and other community partners to help the family as a whole get through the emotional impact that comes along with the diagnosis.
Having someone to talk to going through the same or having been through the same situation can also be a great avenue to cope with the emotional stress that others have no idea about. We provide opportunities connecting families to other families who are going through the same battle in a personal setting or at one our fun outside activities including; basketball games, days at the park, and more. This provides an opportunity for the child in treatment to connect with others along with the parents and siblings.
Please contact us if you need any assistance or have questions at 916-784-6786. We are here to help in all ways possible to illuminate some daily stresses, providing the family time to focus on their child getting better.
