Wellwood – Kids in the Kitchen/Power Up

Each of us has been affected by cancer in some way and we know how difficult it can be, which is why our community is fortunate to have WellwoodWellwood is a non-profit organization that provides information, supportive care programs and support to people who have cancer, their families, caregivers and healthcare providers.

Living with serious illness in the family is one of the hardest things a person can go through, particularly when it affects children. This is especially true when the person who is sick is a sibling or parent.

Kids in the Kitchen, is a fantastic and worthwhile Children’s program at Wellwood made available to children living with serious illness in the family.  Since the program began last fall, Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC and Image Honda have been providing supervised transportation of children to and from the program to ease the burden on parents and caregivers.

This program in collaboration with Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton runs in 6 week durations for children ages 9-12, Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm.  During this time, children participate in nutritious meal preparation while being helped with homework on a personalized level in a safe environment with others in the same situation.

For information, or to register a child, please call 905-667-8870
