CLIMB® is a programme for children who are experiencing the impact of a parent’s, other significant adult’s or a brother or sister’s cancer diagnosis.The main reason that LGFA have selected CLIMB® is that it is a vision of one of our colleagues, Clare Clarke, to see this available for all children throughout Ireland.
Clare was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago and fought the disease to be given the all clear only to unfortunately be diagnosed with secondary cancer 2 years ago again.Clare was faced with the same issue that so many parents are in having to explain to her two children the news that she was after receiving. In Clare’s own words “I am just an ordinary person trying to get around what is happening myself, how do I explain this to my children in a vocabulary they understand to allow them to answer any questions they are asked. This is where CLIMB® can ensure this happens.”
Unfortunately for Clare as she researched for a support programme for her children she realised that there was none available and began to research what she could do to fill this gap in the support structures for cancer sufferers. Clare discovered the CLIMB® Programme and her aim is to see this rolling out throughout all cancer care centres in Ireland through the support of LGFA and the Irish Cancer Society.
