\u00a0\u201cI began volunteering for Leucan in March 2004, a little more than a year after my godson died of Leukemia.\u00a0 It was very quick.\u00a0 He was admitted to hospital on December 16 and passed away on the 27th<\/sup>.\u00a0 My godson was my cousin, so I began participating in activities for bereaved families with his sister, also my cousin.\u00a0 That\u2019s how I came to know Leucan.<\/p>

When I began, I mostly babysat at the hospital.\u00a0 Then, over the next six years, I continued to volunteer but more sporadically: activities like the Christmas Party and some fundraising activities.\u00a0 I also started volunteering in family activities, and got involved with the Leucan Shaved Head Challenge.<\/p>

Generally, what I enjoy most are activities that involve the families.\u00a0 I like spending time with them and since I have been volunteering for many years, some families even recognize me.\u00a0 I can chat with them and play with the children!\u201d<\/p>

Why volunteer for Leucan?<\/strong><\/h2>

\u201c\u2026Because it is very fulfilling, both in heart and soul.<\/p>

Leucan is like a big family.\u00a0 Everyone is welcome; regardless of who you are, where you\u2019re from, your age or what you do for a living\u2026\u00a0 To volunteer for Leucan means being with people who are genuinely generous, all the while doing things that are fun.\u201d<\/p><\/p>\r\n<\/div> <\/div>\r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>"}
