“You Are Not Alone” Rogers County has formed a support group for children with chronic conditions, their parents and siblings
Third Thursday of the month / 6:30 PM
First United Methodist Church, 1615 N. Highway 88, Claremore, OK.
In the group the children and adults meet separately and then come back together. The children have an opportunity to meet other kids who are coping with a chronic condition and letting them know they are not alone. For siblings the important issue is letting them know they are not forgotten when their brother or sister are coping with an illness. Parents get assistance in navigating services for their child’s condition and meet others coping with the same situation
