One of a kind
This is a guide to Radiotherapy for children who are being treated by the NHS for cancer. We interviewed children undergoing treatment to inform the film, and Writer Dave Ingham then worked with Emma Lazenby to create the final script. We used the voice of one of the children being treated for cancer for the key character “Molly” who leads us through the treatment stages in the animation.
