Children are another group deeply affected by a breast cancer diagnosis, and their confusion and fright may be difficult to manage.
Frustrated that they weren’t able to provide their young patients with resources, Dr. Kim Chilman-Blair and Dr. Kate James created Medikidz, a multimedia Company dedicated to enabling children to answer questions about their health, in their language and at their level.
In October, the American Cancer Society will partner with Medikidz to publish “What’s Up with Bridgets Mom?”, in which the Medikidz explain breast cancer by climbing into a lymph duet and, later, tackle chemotherapy and its side effects. The comic is written by John Taddeo.
