In this follow-up film to No Fears, No Tears, Dr. Leora Kuttner revisits seven of the children featured in the original program thirteen years later to explore the long-term impact of having learned as a child how to deal with fear and pain. These now young adults vividly recollect their painful childhood experiences, and describe how learning to master the pain has affected their lives. Their stories dramatically challenge prevailing myths about childhood pain proving that children can learn to actively help themselves through even the most taxing medical treatment.
“It is rare that professionals and parents are permitted to hear from survivors on such a personal level. This video is an exquisite resource, and should be carefully viewed by professionals, parents, and children with cancer.” —Eleanor G. Pask, MScN. EdD. Childhood Cancer Foundation
