Summary

Cancer treatment is very intense and the child then experiences the painful body or its alteration (skin alteration, hair and eyebrow loss, weight...). For several years, we offers weekly therapeutic support workshop sessions to children in Mother-Child poles at the hospital. It brings them relief, enhance self-esteem, facilitate family relations & many other psychological/physical positive effects. In a few years, the services have seen an increase in the number of children welcomed.

Challenge

Cancer treatment is very intense and the child then experiences the painful body or its alteration : skin alteration, hair and eyebrow loss, weight, fragile skin... This leads to a great psychological/emotional fragility (especially for teenagers), and by repercussion to relational difficulties with parents/siblings. In top of that, the services have seen a tremendous increase in the number of children welcomed: sometimes, the professional has now to choose the children helped!

Solution

Socio-aesthetics can prevent and relieve the undesirable effects of treatments, enhance self-image (crucial for teenagers), relax and comfort. It helps fighting against the cancer. When parents are involved, the parent-child bond can be maintained or recreated (through massage exercises...). Our help, thanks to you, will increase the hours available to help support all and each of the children.

Long-Term Impact

Less medications, better psychological and emotional strengh, better relations with the family and avoid psychological long terme effects ; facilitate reintegration (school, friends...)
