Chemo Duck Introduces Cartoon To Explain Cancer Treatment

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Childhood cancer is something no family wants to deal with. Gabe's Chemo Duck Program is a nonprofit organization that supports children and families living with cancer. What started as an educational stuffed animal, has now turned into an eight-year program focusing on encouragement, support and the explanation of cancer treatments to parents and young ones alike.

"The more educated and the more prepared they are, knowing what's going to come, the more relaxed they are, and the better they respond to treatment. So it really is very vital for children," said Lu Sipos, founder of Gabe's Chemo Duck.

Saturday, Gabe's Chemo Duck Program debuted its first ever cartoon at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

A kid-friendly explanation of what children dealing with the disease should expect from their treatment.
