BEAT offers separate Educational Sessions for parents and teen patients/survivors. Guest speakers present information about treatment and long-term survival issues. Licensed counselors facilitate separate Support Groups for parents; teen patients/survivors age 12-16; and young adult patients/survivors. Younger patients/survivors and siblings have exciting activities designed by the therapy staff. BEAT Support Groups meet six times a year on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
