Being a teenager is hard enough.

When there is cancer or cancer loss in the family, it becomes that much harder.

Research shows that tweens and teens may be even more negatively and deeply impacted by the stress of cancer at home than their younger siblings. Not only do they have a deeper understanding of the situation and its dangers, but they are also likely to take on a heavier burden of household tasks and responsibilities.

Our teen program works to help our teenagers connect with each other in a fun, non-threatening way. We started our teen program with the assumption that there is a higher chance of connecting with one another if parents and younger siblings are not invited. Recent teen-only events include laser tag, a rope-course park, a bike tour of Tel Aviv, and online meetings with young TV actors and video animators. And pizza makes every activity better, even our virtual ones.

We also added teen-friendly activities to our family fun days. For example, at a recent Sukkoth event at the Balagan Activity Park near Yagur, as the younger children enjoyed the rides and climbing gyms, over 40 tweens and teens practiced Krav Maga in workshops at a separate section of the park.
