Cancer in the Classroom
What do you say to a child who asks, “Is cancer contagious?” Our Cancer in the Classroom program helps 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.
Cancer in the Classroom is an interactive presentation designed specifically for the level of understanding of the students. Whether newly diagnosed or re-integrating 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.

During COVID-19, we are offering Cancer in the Classroom via online platforms.
Our Education Support Program is presented in honour of Steven Fowler who loved school and loved learning. Special thanks to the Canada Post Community Foundation for supporting the launch of Cancer in the Classroom.
