Every day, children with cancer privately fight battles most adults are unaware of; one of these battles is among their classroom peers. How does a child with cancer explain they are not contagious, they are bald, look sick, and often throw up because of chemotherapy? How do they explain their brain fog, physical weakness, and missed days from school? How do they comfort their friends who are concerned for them, and explain how they feel about all they are going through? How do they cope with bullying?
We will educate over 5,000 students implementing this highly effective Classroom Education Program. The program eliminates fear and common misconceptions children have about cancer, providing an open door of communication for kids to ask tough questions, and voice their concerns and care for their classmate who is living with cancer.
Built on simple solutions, this program encourages empathy, consideration, and understanding; it helps the student/patient feel more confident among their peers, eliminates bullying, provides a strong support system at school, and provides a better sense of inclusion in the classroom when they have been absent for extended periods of time.
We provide each student their own copy of our 32-page, full color picture book, "I'm A Kid Living with Cancer" to learn from as it is read aloud, helping better understand through text and illustrations, everything from signs and symptoms of cancer, to diagnosis, treatments, time away from school, time in the hospital, side effects, and remission.
The Q&A time is very special; the kids have an opportunity to ask all their questions, and have them answered by the book's author, Jenevieve Fisher, who is a Radiation Oncology Therapist specialized in Pediatrics, and a cancer survivor herself.
We encourage the students to take their book home to share what they have learned with their family and friends. Every family is impacted by cancer, and whether it is a grandparent, aunt, uncle, neighbor, or friend; in every classroom there have been students with additional questions and concerns about their family member or friend's diagnosis.
Our goal is to honor childhood through creating a tangible, lasting impact; providing encouragement and hope through education.
We have a rapidly growing list of schools who have requested our Classroom Education Program to honor their student living with cancer, and we are committed to providing books to each classroom, with either an in-person or virtual visit to each and every school!
Help us build, improve, impact. We are eager to bless these classrooms, expand our influence, and welcome you to come along side of us.
