For Kids! Arthur Episode about Cancer on PBS Oct.19 and Every Day That Week
This new two-part Arthur episode takes on an important subject that affects the lives of so many children and families: cancer. This special two-part show features a special animated appearance by Lance Armstrong, who knows a thing or two about cancer survivorship, and who helps Francine, and kids like her, find ways to cope with their feelings and show their love and support.
The episode will air every day the week of Monday, October 19 (check local listings).
PBS KIDS has additional ARTHUR resources for parents and teachers that can be used to help educate kids about cancer
