Benjy and his journey through cancer

Benjy has cancer

But what is cancer anyway? And what impact does it have on his life, his family and friends?

Choose your version

Benjy’s story is available in three main versions: told by himself, told by his sister Lea or told by his school friends Charlotte and Paul. You can also choose between different types of cancer: solid tumor, leukemia and cerebral tumors. The story has been illustrated by two Swiss artists: Adrienne Barmann and Johan Walder. All versions have been translated into several languages.
