CLIC Sargent on BBC Breakfast - talking to children about cancer

On Thursday 17 November, CLIC Sargent’s Simon Morgan-Jones joined the team on the BBC Breakfast sofa as part of its A Light on Cancer week. He answered questions about how to talk to children about cancer, and the techniques nurses and play specialists use to help young patients understand and cope with treatment.
