‘Good Grief’ program set

The Sierra Nevada Cancer Center is now offering a “Good Grief” program to help children aged 6 through 12 deal with the death of a loved one.

The program is part of the ongoing “Kidscope” series, and will be held on consecutive Tuesdays from 3:45 to 5:15 p.m. at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital.

Jeanine Bryant, children’s program coordinator for the Cancer Center, said the program uses creative art, clay and play to help children cope.

“This is the language of children,” she said. A teen group is available, as needed.

To register, or for more information, call Bryant at 274-6654.
