JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — In a partnership with the Summit Counseling Center, CURE has launched a pilot of a new counseling program for families of children battling cancer.

Recognizing that a diagnosis of childhood cancer affects the entire family, CURE is able to make one-on-one counseling available to families at a minimal cost.

"The Summit Counseling Center approached CURE about partnering in caring for families we serve," said Lisa Branch, director of patient and family services.

The Summit, 2750 Old Alabama Road, Suite 200 in Johns Creek, offers counseling services, from individual to family counseling, play therapy for children and grief counseling.

Under the guidelines of CURE's pilot program, families of children diagnosed or relapsing after January 1, 2011 or bereaved families, who lost a child after this date, will be eligible for up to six counseling sessions of any type per family.
