Art therapy is introduced to children

 Art therapy is increasingly being used around the world by patients to cope with cancer as part of a psychosocial care programme. According to research, art therapy can help reduce anxiety and depression and even physical pain symptoms. Cancer Fund’s newly joint art therapists Abbie So and HoiLam Tang are ready to promote this therapy that helps improve the quality of life of our clients, especially children who are not well versed in express in words. For instance, in our recent Rainbow Club family group we addressed a topic on a family’s view of cancer and one mother learned that her children had different ideas to help their father persevere through treatments and she was surprised by that and one couple learned to better communicate with one another.

Our art therapists Abbie and HoiLam are able to tell us how art therapy is an effective tool in assisting patients and their family members to move forward with better communication and hope.

As we look forward to embracing a new beginning with hope and optimism, I would like to take a moment to thank our frontline teams. I am so proud of how every one of them adapted during the last 18 months to ensure that we continued to provide our much needed free professional support, whether that was on Zoom training or reaching out through WhatsApp or phone calls, they always ensured that no one was facing cancer alone. During the sunny and cooler days of January, we held our first virtual Stride for a Cure charity walkathon to raise fund for our projects. Hundreds of people across Hong Kong took part and completed their 5km hike and helped raise funds for cancer research. We thank them all! Finally, I would like to thank all of you, our supporters, donors, volunteers and peer support groups who have inspired, motivated and helped us throughout the years.
