About us our program
Striving to improve quality of life for children and their families, we have developed a programme focused on strengthening the relationships strained by the disease and facilitating a stronger connection with others. Co-created with Childhood Cancer International, a multidisciplinary scientific committee and families, as well as patients associations, this programme is based on three tools:
The ‘parent/child massage’: a set of gentle, fun movements developed with healthcare professionals to offer families an emotional pause. Through touch, parents and children can reconnect and share a tender moment, where well-being overcomes pain.
The emotion scale : a tool for assessing and communicating about the emotional state. Its aim is to help children identify and express their emotions, based on the universal principle of the pain scale.
A digital platform offering reliable information and resources to support children, parents and loved ones on key topics for quality of life, such as communication, dealing with change and emotions, etc.
What happens next?
