Giant loom band comforts sick kids at Wirral’s Clatterbridge Cancer Centre

A cancer specialist has come up with the idea of using loom bands to help reduce anxiety among children being treated at a Merseyside hospital. Because radiotherapy is so powerful, only the patient is allowed to be in the room during treatment. But for small children, being away from their parents can be quite daunting. So Sarah Stead, paediatric advanced practitioner radiotherapist from The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in Wirral and her colleagues set about making a giant loom band and now, the 65ft band is being used to help comfort kids.
