Paul and the Dragon

โ€‹

Paul and the dragon is a wonderful psycho-social resource made available from the American Childhood Cancer Organization, acco.org/ and Vereniging Ouders Kinderen en Kanker, vokk.nl. The short film, without words to be accessible for all, tells the journey of Paul fighting the dragon (his cancer) and all the different elements of his journey fighting the dragon. The children absolutely love watching Paul beat the dragon and our amazing psycho-social staff do a wonderful job of helping the children relate to Paul and find solace and strength in his victory.
