Community Media Productions
CDC partnered with Community Media Productions to produce and present A Lion in the House, a documentary that offers an unprecedented look at the cancer journey of five young people and their families over a six-year period. Award-winning filmmakers Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert bring audiences face-to-face with the uncertainty of the entire cancer experience and its rippling effect on the family, community, and professional caregivers. The documentary was televised on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) stations.
A Lion in the House won a 2007 Emmy® Award for Exceptional Merit in Nonfiction Filmmaking from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
A series of short educational video modules on DVD have been created based on expanded stories from A Lion in the House. Each module is a case study focusing on a specific aspect of childhood cancer, and most include the perspectives and insight of the health care team as well as the extended family.
Knight Cancer Institute
The Oregon Health and Science University Knight Cancer Institute developed an e-Toolkit to disseminate educational materials for adolescent and young adult hematologic cancer survivors by integrating electronic health records and special electronic forms. These tools allow timely and customized delivery of relevant educational materials, based on information entered for that patient.
