With the advancement of technology and the dramatic growth of medical science, diseases such as cancer that were previously untreatable have now been cured. However, for many people, the disease is synonymous with death. Not knowing enough about the disease and its treatment process exacerbates fear and tension. Children with cancer usually do not have a clear and informed understanding of their illness, given their age and mood, so they are less likely to cope with it. This study aims to reduce children's anxiety and help them to improve their mental health by informing children through play. In this regard, by designing a web site and a game, in addition to indirectly transmitting necessary information about the disease and its condition, it has tried to reduce children's anxiety and increase their hope. The output of this research was designed on the basis of continuous interactions with users and the fabrication of multiple prototypes and was optimized by evaluating users to arrive at designs. Anxiety and life expectancy tests were also performed on users to determine the efficacy and validation of this product. The results showed that indirect awareness through play means can play an effective role in reducing anxiety in children with cancer and increasing their cooperation in the therapeutic process.
