Comforting children with cancer.

Though Aflac has been around since 1955, it wasn’t until 2000 that the Aflac Duck became a part of our family. Since then, he has been both a comedic brand icon as well as a symbol of Aflac’s support of children fighting cancer. And now, he’s comforting the children of Northern Ireland.

Introducing My Special Aflac Duck™. A cuddly, comforting companion for children ages 3 and up who have cancer, this is Aflac Northern Ireland’s promise that you are not alone. In partnership with Children’s Cancer Unit Charity, Aflac Northern Ireland has committed to provide this robotic companion to paediatric cancer patients, free of charge.

My Special Aflac Duck™

This soft and soothing companion helps children prepare for medical procedures, communicate their feelings, practise distraction techniques and so much more. To request a My Special Aflac Duck™ for a child fighting cancer, please contact the Children’s Cancer Unit Charity.
