When cancer is present in the family, home can be a difficult place to be when you’re a kid. That’s why Crescentia Healy-True founded On Belay, an adventure based support system for kids whose families are struggling with cancer. When Crescentia was diagnosed with breast cancer, she decided to create a resource for her two daughters where they could form a network of friendship and support even after she was gone.

Today, On Belay serves 150 families from towns across New England, giving kids the skills and confidence to not only discover their inner resilience but to let loose, have fun and be a kid!

If you would like to find out more about On Belay and the programs they provide, visit their website or follow them on Facebook or Twitter.
