3 Amazing Nonprofits for Kids Diagnosed With Cancer

Season 1, Ep. 4

In this week’s episode of The UpBeat Podcast powered by CoachArt, co-host Greg is joined by special guest host Elena, one of CoachArt’s board members (and our interviewee on podcast episode 3), as they sit down to chat with CoachArt’s marketing director, Roxanne. 

Roxanne switches seats from co-host to interviewee and shares her experience with pediatric cancer. Her daughter, Aleyna, was diagnosed with Wilms tumor at age 6. Roxanne provides tips and advice on how to help your child navigate the social pressures encountered by children with chronic illness and tells a touching story of how a little note to a classmate’s parents led to a big gesture from new friends.
