The Magic Tree is an app created specifically for children ages 5-8 who have a mother with breast cancer. With input from patient advocacy groups and experts in breast cancer, the Magic Tree, through animated videos, explains in an age-appropriate way what cancer is, how it affects the body, and provides an overview of the treatments for breast cancer, including chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Each time a child watches a video or plays one of the games, they receive a decoration for their tree. The Magic Tree emphasizes that cancer is not the child’s fault, it encourages kids to ask questions, and also provides guidelines for parents to have a family discussion about breast cancer.
