What is Pathways?

Pathways offers peer support groups for children, teens, and their adults when a family member is living with an advanced serious illness. Pathways consists of a group for children, one for teens, one for adult caregivers, and a group for the adults diagnosed with an advanced serious illness. All groups meet at the same time so families can come together. Groups are ongoing and you can join anytime.
