Situation

There is very little information and support available in a child- friendly format.

Solution

- Prepare them psychologically for surgery. - Increase their and their siblings’ understanding of what happens when in a hospital. - Allow children to express their worries and cope with their treatment by looking after and playing with customized to their condition dolls.
