Video Game Helps Young Patients Fight Cancer.

HopeLab has created a PC-based video game called Re-Mission for young cancer patients. In the game, the patient controls a nanobot named Roxxi that destroys cancer cells and battles infection.

The video game, which stays true to the actual science of cancer as a disease and to the realities of cancer therapies, builds a sense of confidence and teaches children about cancer and the medications they're taking to fight the disease.
