The Little C Club
The Little C Club is co founded by two mummies with Secondary Breast Cancer. Jen & Nic met and instantly became friends and identified the need for better resources to help parents explain their diagnosis to their children.
Nicola is a nurse and Jen is a teacher so between them have created 'The Little C Club'. The Little C Club flash cards are a creative, colourful tool designed with children aged between 2-10 in mind to act as a learning resource. The flash cards explain cancer in basic terms, including children in important conversations and making sure they have the answers they need, rather than jumping to their own conclusions.
Each card is a letter from the A-Z of cancer topics, including illustrations to help them visualise and activities to do with family members relating to the topic being discussed. Each card can be used whenever needed depending on treatment plans and situations. It was important for Jen and NIc that these conversations were opened up and that parents were given the tools to do so in a way that children were comfortable learning. The flash cards aim to be a fun way of children interacting with a scary topic.
