‘Teen zone’ for Cancer Patients

A dream come true for a young Winnipeg woman, although sadly, she’s not here to see it.

Teenage cancer patient Kendra McBain struggled not only with the deadly disease, she also vowed to make the awful experience a little more comfortable for other teens living the same reality.

With bright colors, comfy furniture and a big screen TV, it’s the ultimate teenage hangout.

But it’s a room in the most unlikely of places with meaning beyond what the eye can see.

“She chose to be treated as a pediatric patient but she recognized in the course of three years that she went through treatment, that she really wasn’t one or the other. She wasn’t a child & she wasn’t an adult,” explains Tammy McBain.
