CCCL and QCS Partner for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!

September 27, 2021

On the occasion of September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, this year 2021, and emphasizing regional networks across borders for childhood cancer control:

The Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) and the Qatar Cancer Society (QCS) join forces in an awareness raising collaboration, promoting key facts about pediatric oncology symptoms, the importance of early detection, diagnoses, treatment journey, and survivorship.

This is done through sharing the CCCL Bus of Hope film series, produced thanks to the support of UNICEF and Sanofi Espoir, which is a collection of 5 simple and engaging short films promoting public awareness about childhood cancer.

Regional collaborations on crucial issues like childhood cancer control are essential to promoting much needed awareness, which helps in early detection, as well as destigmatizing cancer, and easing the journey on patients and their families.

The CCCL Bus of Hope films also feature childhood cancer patients, parents, survivors sharing their journey and experiences; alongside animations to convey the facts clearly.

The films are in Arabic with English and French subtitling, and suited for all audiences of different ages.

Please check the Bus of Hope series on YouTube and share with your friends and family.
