This project was a product of an MFA class in which we were tasked with creating a social media platform for an under-served population. The Ward is a social media app specifically designed for children and youth dealing with cancer. It allows users to post about all aspects of their lives, both the happy and the sad moments, as well as interact with other kids and send support to others just like them. Children dealing with cancer are, many times, isolated from their friends and support networks while undergoing intensive chemotherapy and treatment. This can lead to depression, anxiety, and even more health complications. By providing an outlet for these children to share their experiences with each other, The Ward offers a new community and an outlet to those who need it most.
