Winner of the 2005 APEX award CCN, is an interactive multimedia CD-ROM for adolescents with solid tumors. Titled Conquering Cancer Network: Empowering Teens with Tools, Info and Inspiring Stories (aka CCN), was developed under a Small Business Innovation Research Grant from the National Cancer Institute, at the National Institutes of Health. Working with The Degge Group, Ltd. and Leapfrog Solutions O-Zone created the video and animation segments along with the narration, music, and sound designed.
The purpose of CCN is to teach 12-18 year-olds with cancer about their illness, its treatment, side effects, potential late effects, and to provide coping skills to help support them through this challenge. When the CD-ROM opens, one can select from 7 different TV screens set up much like a network station; each show represents a different aspect of living with cancer. Music, video, voiceover, interactive games, animation, and cool graphics were incorporated to engage the young users. The CD-ROM provides an interesting "edutainment" way to learn about solid tumors; no such interactive educational tool existed before the creation of CCN.
