Abstract: Children’s Healing Art Project (CHAP) is a place where kids can be themselves no matter what situation they are facing in their lives. At CHAP everyone is facing a challenge such as a disability, cancer, or other terminal diseases and it’s that special bond that brings the kids and their families together. This documentary takes you on a journey with three families as you discover the challenges they face and how art has helped as they overcome them.
