Imaginary Friend Society – explaining cancer to kids

  • Imaginary-Friend-Society

Imaginary Friend Society is a series of animation videos that explains cancer to kids in a sensitive and fun way.

The series was created by the Paediatric Brain Foundation and covers both the medical and emotional aspects of cancer in an effort to make children more comfortable while facing cancer.

Some of the videos include topics such as:

  • Finding out you have cancer
  • Why am I tired all the time?
  • How to handle shots
  • Returning to school
  • Being scared
  • Long hospital stays
  • Blood transfusions, and
  • Feeling sad.
