Tom's Warriors is a gathering of young families struggling with a cancer diagnosis of a spouse/partner or a child, or who have lost a child or spouse/partner. This encouragement group is being led by Ilene Mastrangelo whose husband lost his battle at age 43. Their daughter Grace was 4 at the time. Grace, who is now 9, along with a Therapist will meet separately from the adults, to have fun and do an empowering craft. Children ages 5 through teens, who have a parent with cancer currently, or have lost a parent to cancer are welcome to attend.
Ilene's goal is to pay it forward to support others locally, as she was supported during her journey, but she had to travel to the city. Ilene believes it’s just as important for children to be able to talk to other children who are experiencing the same journey.
The group will meet at Pillars in Trappe at 6:15pm. Masks will be the choice of those attending. This group is free to all who attend, and will be held at on the 4th Tuesday of each month sponsored by Pillars of Light and Love, at the Empowering U Center, 511 W Main St, Trappe PA.
