Adolescents and young adults with cancer have the poorest health outcomes and lowest survival rates of any age group. Reduced adherence to prescribed cancer treatment regimens is believed to be a contributing factor to these poor outcomes. HopeLab's Re-Mission video game helps these young people with cancer maintain better treatment adherence and improve their sense of control over their disease. We are seeking to expand our global distribution of free copies to young cancer patients.


HopeLab provides Re-Mission to young cancer patients attending special cancer camps, and to providers and family who care for them when they are in treatment. Our website,, supports game ordering and social networking.

Long-Term Impact

Each year in the U.S. alone, 25,000 young people receive a cancer diagnosis and begin the fight of their lives. This project supports free distribution of Re-Mission to these kids at a time when they need it most.
