VISIBILITY FOR CHILDREN WITH CaNCER AND DISABILITIES
Amputation brought on by a life-threatening illness takes as much of an emotional toll as a physical one - especially for a child. At Scarlett Contra el Cancer, we believe in the power of entertainment media to empower children through storytelling and role models. Visibility in media offers these children hope and a sense of belonging at a critical time where they may feel isolated by their medical condition.
If you have a child who suffered amputations because of cancer, you know that content for them is virtually non-existent. That's why we at Scarlett Contra el Cancer partnered with the STUDIO, a digital production and animation company with a long standing commitment to helping non-profits tell their stories. The animated short was inspired by Scarlett Aida Rivero Osejo - our inspiration for our foundation.
