This short piece briefly describes a creative project undertaken by a group of adolescent and young adult cancer patients as part of our Youth Project (a scheme dedicated to young cancer patients with the dual aim of optimizing medical aspects of their care and promoting a holistic approach to their needs, including the organization of artistic activities). In this project, young cancer patients designed their personalized playing cards, with kings receiving chemo, queens wearing bandanas, jacks dressed as nurses, and jokers as doctors. The playing cards, with the patients' own words, contain a little bit of these young cancer patients' stories in them.

Abstract

This short piece briefly describes a creative project undertaken by a group of adolescent and young adult cancer patients as part of our Youth Project (a scheme dedicated to young cancer patients with the dual aim of optimizing medical aspects of their care and promoting a holistic approach to their needs, including the organization of artistic activities). In this project, young cancer patients designed their personalized playing cards, with kings receiving chemo, queens wearing bandanas, jacks dressed as nurses, and jokers as doctors. The playing cards, with the patients' own words, contain a little bit of these young cancer patients' stories in them.
