Ropinder Gill, our Chief Executive, explains:
“We’re often asked to help parents who need to talk to children about a lymphoma diagnosis. Their feedback suggested that a simple, visual approach would help to put the complicated condition across to kids in a way that was reassuring and easy to understand. Our animation, voiced by a child, covers what lymphoma is, the kind of treatment someone might have for lymphoma and how a lymphoma diagnosis might affect day-to-day life
We’re thrilled to be in the running for a Charity Film Award because we believe this animation could bring real comfort and understanding to children coping with the news of a lymphoma diagnosis in the family. We also hope it'll prove to be a useful tool to help parents, carers and medical professionals approach a topic that can be emotionally difficult and medically complicated.
Lymphoma Action exists to inform, support and connect everyone who may be affected by a diagnosis of lymphoma and our animated film fits the bill perfectly."
