  • The Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center (SJJCC) has partnered with Winthrop-University Hospital's Cancer Center for Kids to provide family days of recreation and relaxation for families whose lives have been affected by pediatric cancer.

    Sponsored by a grant from SJJCC's BASICS Fund, the event, held at the SJJCC, enables the children to enjoy a normal morning of play and competition in games of sports and theatre. Meanwhile, parents are invited to restore their energy in the CPT Wellness Center with power massages before teaming up with their children during a family game show following a barbeque lunch.

    SJJCC's Center for Partners in Community Care has sought funding from the New York State Department of Health to continue to offer the Family Sunday Program four additional times in the coming year. For more information about the program, or about the Cancer Center for Kids, contact (516) 663-9409.
