LACONIA — Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice was invited by Gilda’s Club to talk with kids about cancer. On May 21 at 6:30 p.m., Schelley Rondeau, RN, Central’s pediatric program coordinator, will present Frankly Speaking About Cancer: What Do I Tell the Kids? 

Frankly Speaking is a free, educational workshop for people who want to learn about supporting children and teens through a family member’s cancer diagnosis and treatment. Many parents try to protect children by not sharing information, but in the dark, children of all ages can feel the impact of an illness on a family. 

The workshop will be held at Taylor Community in the Woodside Building and is free and open to the public. To RSVP, call 603-387-6775, or email
