Since 1995, Aflac employees, agents and The Aflac Foundation, Inc., have donated more than $125 million toward pediatric cancer research and treatment. We are committed to helping make a difference in the lives of children facing cancer across the country, because every child deserves a lifetime.

My Special Aflac DuckTM, part of Aflac’s ongoing Aflac Childhood Cancer CampaignTM and developed by Sproutel, is an innovative, smart robotic companion that features naturalistic movements, joyful play and interactive technology to help comfort children coping with cancer. With a year of child-centered research behind it, My Special Aflac Duck is a part of Aflac’s 22-year commitment to providing care and support for children who have cancer. Aflac’s goal is to distribute this smart companion to the nearly 16,000 children in the U.S. who are newly diagnosed with cancers each year, free of charge.
