Cancer in the Classroom

What do you say to a child who says, “Is cancer contagious?”

Cancer in the Classroom is a program designed to help kids with cancer talk to their classmates about their diagnosis and treatment. The goal is to build awareness, understanding and empathy in the child’s school community to mitigate potential social, academic and adjustment difficulties. All this is done through an interactive presentation designed specifically for the level of understanding of the students.

Whether newly diagnosed or re-integrating back into class during/after treatment, this presentation is an effective way to answer questions, clarify misunderstandings, share the facts, provide resources and ease concerns about cancer.
