Teddy Bears help Kids Understand Parent’s Cancer

Emma Moore – Certified Child Life Specialist at Nankind

Finding out that a parent has cancer can be extremely scary for kids. Many times they are unable to understand their parent’s cancer diagnosis or express their feelings in a healthy way.

On World Cancer Day, Nankind was featured on CityNews to raise awareness for our Teddy bears kits. These kits help children understand their parent’s cancer and build emotional resilience through therapeutic play with a Certified Child Life Specialist.
