It was Kyra's idea!
This club originated as an idea of a local teen cancer patient, Kyra M, from Forest Hill, MD. Kyra attends Bel Air High School but has had to withdraw in her junior year because treatments have caused her to miss too much school. Part of Kyra's frustration is missing out on the normal social interactions with her peers.
How can you join the Teens.CanSur.vive Club?
The club is open to teens ages 13-19 and meets on average once a month at the Cool Kids Learning Center in Towson, MD. Frequency of meetings depends on what events they are planning or attending. The club is driven primarily through Facebook. Interested teens should join the Facebook Group (managed by Kyra) or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive current announcements.
Teens.CanSur.vive enjoyed a Baltimore Orioles game in August 2013, courtesy of Legg Mason, including the 'suite' life and all of its amenities.
Baltimore Color Run
The Teen Club volunteered with the Cool Kids Campaign at the first Baltimore Color Run in May and November 2013. Pediatric oncology patients, their families, and survivors staffed the YELLOW color station. Read more about this colorful event and how you can volunteer.
