Horse Riding Therapy Program for Children who are Cancer Survivors

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is very excited to be able to offer a free of charge therapeutic riding program to our families.

This is in partnership with a great non-profit, "Horse Power for Life"

Riding stables are in Chester County. But we may be able to provide a different location if there is enough interest in a particular area.

This program is open to all children who are cancer survivors. The lessons will be an hour and half, once a week. Children will be able to have up to 16 weeks paid for by LLS!

To sign up for the program or for more information, please call Ilana Benyosef, Patient Services Manager at 610-238-0360 ext. 6781or email: ilana.benyosef@lls.org or fill out the  event interest form and someone form LLS will contact you.

Space is limited! Call us today!

Horse Power 

"Our goal is to help families living with cancer focus on their minds, bodies, and souls, rather than the disease while learning about horses in an atmosphere of professionalism, teamwork, and fun. The program completely customized for each patient depending on age, horse knowledge, comfort level, health and physical ability."
