I DRAW CHILDHOOD CANCER
Visual resources for children and their families facing childhood cancer by Angus Olsen
How does IDCC help?
From a Childhood cancer Survivor and Childlife Specialist perspective, I love what you have done. Your books are a great tool to use for newly diagnosed kids.
Everything in the world of cancer is meant for adults. The medicines were designed for adults. The pamphlets and diagnosis and tests – all explained to adults. The decisions are too big, the choices are impossible – and adults make them all. IDCC was the first time we found something someone had made that wasn’t for us. It was for her.
Some of your work has taken my breath away. The way you capture the real, raw emotion of what our kids go through is remarkable. It’s all so relatable and makes me feel less alone.
