The online games teaching children about their cancer

4 September 2013 Last updated at 09:37 BST

A non-profit company called HopeLab has developed a series of free online games, known as Re-Mission 2, designed to help young people learn about their cancer.

The company spoke to those who had suffered from the disease for ideas about how to make the games more appealing.

HopeLab's research found players were more likely to stick to their treatments and view their chemotherapy treatment as a means of defence rather than an obligation.
