Introduction

Child patients with cancer; bone marrow transplant or severe blood disease and survivors are no stranger to hospitals as they often need to travel to and from or stay in order to receive various treatments. After recovery, they still need to have their regular medical Check-ups at the hospital. In 2018, Hong Kong Children’s Hospital will be established and the provision of services will commence in phases to provide quality professional medical treatments to paediatric child patients. What should a Children’s Hospital look like from child patients and survivors’ point of view?

 

In order to let child patients with cancer; bone marrow transplant or severe blood disease and survivors express their imagination and expectation on the Hong Kong Children’s Hospital, Little Life Warrior Society (LLWS) will hold the “Hong Kong-China Childhood Cancer Drawing Competition 2017 (Hong Kong Region)” to allow the patients and survivors to use their creativity to create their own unique Children’s Hospital. LLWS will also hold the competition for the 11 LLWSs in the Mainland. All the winning artwork will be published in an album to foster communication between Hong Kong and the Mainland.

 

Objectives

  • To allow participants to draw their dream Children’s Hospital through their creativity and enhance their self-confidence in the process
