If someone close to you has low-grade non-Hodgkin Lymphoma: A film for children


Telling your child that you or someone they care about has cancer can be a very difficult conversation. Especially when that form of cancer is one that even some adults will have never heard of. 


We therefore set out to create something an adult could use together with a child, to help explain what a low-grade lymphoma diagnosis might mean for their family. Voiced by children, these videos aim to introduce lymphoma in a nonthreatening and reassuring way.


There are other resources available aimed at children with a cancer diagnosis in the family, but there are some important differences between low-grade lymphoma and other types of cancer. As well as covering the more general experiences associated with cancer, such as chemotherapy and hospital appointments, our video covers low-grade lymphoma specific aspects and explains that, unlike other cancers, someone with low-grade lymphoma might not need treatment straightaway.


We hope this animation brings comfort and a sense of understanding to children coping with the news of a lymphoma diagnosis in the family. We also hope it provides a useful tool to help parents and carers approach a topic that can be both emotionally difficult and medically complicated.
