Sometimes a helping
hand is more of a wing

The Park Bench film is a story about family, care, and hope. As Bella, a young girl, struggles to cope with her
father's Sickle Cell diagnosis, she is befriended by an unlikely ally who lends a helping hand (or wing).

Care is at our core

That's why we made this film: to highlight the importance of standing in the gap for those who are struggling. Like African Americans, who are suffering from Sickle Cell at a much higher rate than other ethnicities. Getting health care shouldn't cost them peace of mind, and Aflac is committed to helping ensure it doesn't. Watch this video to learn more.
