HopeLab's new Re-Mission information card (Front)
Battling cancer is not easy. With the Re-Mission video game, HopeLab is helping teens and young adults with cancer as they engage in the fight of their lives. The game is a powerful tool for patients, as well as the caregivers who support them, and we’re working to spread the word.
Every spring, HopeLab attends a number of conferences to talk to people who work directly with young people with cancer. These conferences include doctors, nurses, social workers and child life specialists who have dedicated themselves to helping young patients fight their cancer. Robin Avant, HopeLab’s Manager of Special Projects, is our ambassador in this important work. (See her in action above). This year, Robin attended the Association of Pediatric Oncology Social Workers in Tennessee and the Child Life Conference in Boston, MA, where she introduced hundreds of health care providers to Re-Mission. Robin educates conference attendees on the research demonstrating the effectiveness of Re-Mission in helping young cancer patients stick to their treatments and lets them know how to obtain free copies of the game. The Re-Mission information card distributed at these conferences (see above images) features one of the many young patients whose lives have been improved through their experience with the game.
Every day young people are newly diagnosed with cancer, and we want to be sure that health care providers know that Re-Mission is available free of charge to their patients. Your donations help us provide Re-Mission to these dedicated men and women and the young people they serve.
Thank you for your support of our work to make Re-Mission available to young cancer patients all over the world.
