"Come and Visit" Cancer Center Tours are planned for children of family members undergoing cancer care at the U-M Cancer Center. The tours will be offered at various times throughout the year.
The program is for children ages 5 - 12 years. In addition to the tour, children are invited to say "Hello" to the Therapaw dogs, meet members of the medical team, participate in a fun art activity, enjoy refreshments and receive an award certificate. One adult family member must accompany their child or children throughout the program. The tour group will not visit areas where patient care is taking place.
