"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 six times per 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.
