Teen Support Groups

Focus Group for Teens With Cancer or Serious Blood Illness– This group meets at the Children’s Hospital Austin the 2nd Tuesday of each month for supportive and educational discussions and presentations.

Hungry Bunch Teen Program – The Hungry Bunch provides opportunities for teens who are on or off treatment for cancer, blood disorders, and dialysis to develop friendships with other teens experiencing similar health care experiences, to enjoy normal teen life activities, to learn about their illness and treatment, and to learn how to cope more effectively with their diagnosis.  The group meets monthly for fun outings and parties, such as sports events, Dave & Busters, Fiesta Texas , and holiday parties.

*Ask your Child Life Specialist for more details about any of these groups.
