Who is eligible for programs at The Sajni Center?
Programs at The Sajni Center are open to families, regardless of income, who have children from birth to age 21 who have a life-threatening illness. Thanks to Tough Warrior Princesses, we are now offering spots in each program for adults with cancer and their families.
Are siblings/parents invited to programs?
YES! Siblings and parents/legal guardians are welcome to join programs (with or without the sick child/adult in attendance).
Do participants need to be in active treatment in order to be eligible?
No, participants do not need to be in active treatment to participate in programs at The Sajni Center.
How does a family sign up for programs?
The first step is to complete a short form.
For families who have a child with life-threatening illness, complete the form at lucyslovebus.org/sajnicode.
For adults with cancer, complete the form at lucyslovebus.org/signup.
Once we receive the form, we will email you with a special code that can be used to register for any program.
Please note that you must register for ALL programs in advance; we are unable to accommodate walk-ins at this time, as some programs have a maximum number of participants.
Are programs available for bereaved families?
Yes, we have specific bereavement programs such as Yoga for the Tender-Hearted, but bereaved families who lost a child/sibling to life-threatening illness are welcome to join us at any of our programs. These families are still asked to fill out the short form above to receive the code and registration information.
Will childcare be available?
We will have a staff member and/or volunteer available with activities (games, books, crafts) in an adjacent room to watch younger children or those not participating during programs. If your child requires additional support/care, please let us know in advance as we may ask that you arrange other childcare if we feel we cannot comfortably support your child depending on his/her needs.
What is the cost of the programs?
Programs are free for children with life-threatening illness and their families thanks to Nellie Mae Foundation and Newburyport Bank. Adults with cancer and their families are able to participate free of charge thanks to a partnership with Tough Warrior Princesses.
