When I started, I offered my services as a photographer. Fran\u00e7ois (my husband) is always there for the activities, the Leucan-CSN Summer Camp, some Leucan Shaved Head Challenge, my children are here with us too for some activities. The last one was at the sugar shack, my oldest daughter was Camie, the mascot. My son, who is eleven, was the first to say \"If they need someone to pick up stuff, I\u2019ll go.\" He wanted to come volunteer too. We do this as a family.<\/p>\r\n

I have been volunteering for five years at the respite weekend for families of children who have received a diagnosis during that year. We hosted them at Ch\u00e2teau Beauvallon in Tremblant, we organised a treasure hunt and we experience precious moments of proximity with these families, all while trying to entertain them at the same time. I feel I get a lot back from this. It\u2019s exhausting, because we give a lot, but I appreciate it every year.<\/p>\r\n

Why volunteer at Leucan?<\/h2>\r\n

What gets me is that when a child is sick, it affects the whole family. I have four children. When Audrey got sick, the others were affected too. The fact that I include them and consider them fully and that they get as much privilege as the sick one, I believe it\u2019s important. Family is an important value to me. Leucan has the same values as me. I think it may be for that reason that I continue to give time for this cause.<\/p><\/p>\r\n<\/div> <\/div>\r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>"}
