Children and young people having radiation to the head and neck area require a mask to ensure they remain perfectly still and to keep their head from moving. Markings are drawn on the mask, not on their skin. All patient identifications and marks are removed from the mask at the end of treatment.
Patients have the option to keep their mask and Koala Kids provides materials for Koala Kids and Peter Mac volunteers to transform the masks of children and young people into amazing works of art by some amazing artists.
