Building a Cancer Cloud Kit

The tools within the Cancer Cloud kits are designed to help parents, or adults, talk to children about cancer; help children understand what cancer is and how it is treated; and help families emotionally, and practically during changes in family life after a parent is diagnosed with cancer.

To build a Cancer Cloud kit simply select a tool and add to the shopping cart (you can review at the end). Alternatively you can choose one of our ‘Ready-to-go Kits’ designed for different age groups.
