Connecting Children Impacted by Cancer Collaborative
Livestrong, Hopecam, and Monkey in My Chair have joined forces to provide cancer education, technology, and social support to children ages 5-15 years (grades K-9) across America. Treatment often limits children’s ability to attend school, causing isolation from their friends. During this time, the child’s classmates may not understand what cancer is or how to talk about it. The CCIC provides free technology and Wi-Fi equipment, monkey kits, and educational materials to demystify cancer and unite children, families, and schools.
