PMCer Amy McMahon invites all PMCers to this free event Sunday, Oct. 18.
PMCers are welcome to invite family and friends to When a Child Knows Someone with Cancer: Helping Young Children Cope with the Cancer Diagnosis of a Loved One, taking place at WGBH, One Guest Street in Brighton this Sun, 10/18, 2-3:30pm.
The event, hosted by WGBH, will include a special preview of the new ARTHUR episode, THE GREAT MACGRADY, in which Arthur and his friends learn to cope with the news that Lakewood Elementary’s beloved lunch lady has cancer. Lance Armstrong makes a special, animated appearance in THE GREAT MACGRADY, which makes its broadcast premiere on Mon, 10/19 and already has caught the eye of a TV Guide senior writer who included it in TV Guide’s Hot List for the week.
Following Sunday’s screening at WGBH, an expert panel will discuss new cancer-related resources for families and teachers, and answer questions. Free resources for parents and educators also will be available. This free event is open to the public, ages 16 years or older (sorry, this event is not appropriate for younger children); those interested should RSVP in advance at http://support.wgbh.org/site/Calendar?view=Detail&id=102761.
