3K/5K Walk/Run for We Can
A family's emotional lifeline when a child is diagnosed with a brain tumor
We Can offers information and emotional support to families whose children have brain tumors.
We Can brings families together to meet, share their stories, and equip each other to manage the treatment and recovery of their children through:
hospital and clinic visits
Kidshops for patients and their siblings
teen group activities
parent education meetings
"I have had the privilege of working with We Can and have come to recognize how indispensable this organization has become to children with brain cancer and their families."
-- Jonathan Finlay, MB, ChB, Director, Neural Tumors Program, Children's Hospital Los Angeles
Based in Los Angeles and serving all of California, We Can includes families with newly diagnosed patients, those with children and teenagers who are still in treatment and recovery, and those with older children who were treated more than a decade ago. Our network also includes families who have experienced end-of-life care, death and bereavement.
"We Can has been a critical team member caring for our brain tumor patients, survivors and their families by adddressing their unmet psychosocial needs... and has allowed UCLA to be one of the few pediatric oncology centers that is caring for the 'whole' child."
-- Jacqueline Casillas, MD, MSHS, Director, Life After Cancer Clinic at UCLA's Jonsson Cancer Center
