Cancer Comfort Kits

These Kits are filled with purposeful items to provide comfort and pass the time during cancer treatment. They are meant for any patient in any type of cancer treatment. These kits will be shipped directly to the home, even out of state.

Connect Thru Cancer Busy Bags

These zippered bags are filled with independent activities aimed to keep kids (ages 3-8) busy when respite is needed. Connect Thru Cancer partners with community and city hospitals, as well as hospice centers to provide Busy Bags to children who have a parent or sibling with cancer. Busy Bags are also available for cancer patients that live out of state. Please see the Hospital link for more information.

Art Journaling Workshop

For local cancer support groups, hospitals, cancer centers and corporations throughout the Delaware Valley, this unique and therapeutic program focuses on mindfulness and easing the stress related to a cancer diagnosis and treatment. NO artistic experience is required!

For more information on attending a workshop, please email or check out our calendar for upcoming registrations. Check out some Art Journaling workshop photos.


We provide picture books and workbooks for young children to help talk about a cancer diagnosis. Connect Thru Cancer will also connect families to other grief-related organizations as needed. The CTC Coordinator will consult with each family to determine the appropriate educational support for their individual needs. Connect Thru Cancer Resources will reach beyond the Philadelphia area when appropriate.
