Are there any support groups for children who lost their mother to breast cancer?

Three children who lost their mother to breast cancer at a young age. Both daughters are at high risk and have seen therapists and geneticists. Are there any group-therapy forums that may be appropriate?

Three helpful resources to help children who've lost a mother to breast cancer or any other cancer:

You can find the CLIMB Program at numerous cancer centers around the nation. It is facilitated by Licensed Clinical Social Workers at the cancer centers to help children cope.
For locations visit:http://www.childrenstreehousefdn.org/support.html

Bereavement camps for kids around the nation:http://www.comfortzonecamp.org/

Lastly, there is ongoing support through this online forum:http://www.hellogrief.org/families-with-a-missing-piece/
