Jenny

Jenny is a journey in the heart of a 13-year-old girl who gets diagnosed with leukemia. Unbowed, she rather discovers an impressive strength of character that helps her fight her illness. More than ever, she lives her life to the fullest. We learn to know and like her through her peppy outlook on life.

Leukemia is not contagious, but smiles are!

Jenny is a multi-platform project comprised of a TV series and an interactive participatory platform targeting 10 to 14 year-olds. Jenny is a teenager who finds out she suffers from leukemia. This news will transform her life, her self-perception, her values, her relationships with her close family and friends. In the digital component, young people are invited to discover and follow this transformation. They are also asked to take part in online actions which will have an impact in the real life of those who have suffered or still suffer from isolation caused by the illness.
