Cigna is teaming up with non-profit HopeLab to share products that help young people with cancer improve their health and quality of life. Cigna is offering a free link to download HopeLab's game, Re-Mission 2, to your mobile device or play on your computer.
What is Re-Mission 2?
Re-Mission 2 is a collection of six ground-breaking online games designed by HopeLab to help young cancer patients fight their disease. Research shows that playing the games boosts players’ positive emotions, increases self-efficacy (their belief in their ability to fight cancer) and shifts attitudes about chemotherapy, which lead to better adherence to prescribed treatments.
Each Re-Mission 2 game puts players inside the body to defeat cancer, using weapons like chemotherapy, antibiotics and the body’s immune cells. The action parallels real-world medical treatments used to fight cancer. The games are designed specifically for teens and young adults who are at risk of adverse cancer outcomes due to poor treatment adherence. More than 120 teens and young adults with cancer collaborated with HopeLab to develop and test the Re-Mission 2 games.
Re-Mission 2 is also available free to doctors and facilities that treat young people with cancer!
