App helps kids (and parents) get ready for surgery

Andrew Feng is a bright 6-year-old boy who loves to play the online strategy game Clash of the Clans and go trick-or-treating on Halloween. This Halloween, however, he will be undergoing surgery to remove a benign growth from one of his ribs.

Naturally, Andrew’s parents are a little anxious. This will be their son’s first operation and he might have to stay overnight at the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

“For sure, we’re nervous,” said Andrew’s mother, Weilu Yu. “It’s the whole unknown of the surgery.”
