The League of Defenders


In 1978, children rarely survived a cancer diagnosis.

Today, thanks to donators like you, Leucan’s investments in clinical research allowed for the survival rate to jump from 15% to 82%. Since its foundation, Leucan has invested nearly 20 million of dollars in improving treatments and limiting sequelae and side effects. Since its inception, Leucan has been helping nearly 10,000 families affected by childhood cancer from across the province.

 “I was fortunate to be born at the right time to get proper treatments. That’s why research is so important for me. Without research, some children won’t survive while others will endure sequelae that will affect their normal development. It’s fantastic to think how research can keep us alive.”

  • Close to $1 million in direct financial assistance to families every year
  • Playrooms at the CHU Sainte-Justine, CHUL in Quebec City, and CHUS in Sherbrooke to make hospital visits and stays more pleasant for children
  • A Summer Camp to break isolation
  • Socio-recreational activities to contribute to the family’s well-being
  • Massages to alleviate pain
  • Information to reassure families during this difficult time


This is the feeling that nearly one family experience every day in Quebec when their child is diagnosed with cancer.


The good news is that, thanks to you, Leucan is there for families as soon as the diagnosis falls and through every stage of cancer and its effects. Fortunately, you enable us to be there to deal with the parents’ fear when they lose their bearings and their minds are racing with questions. Thanks to you, we are also there for those children who, though may not fully understand what is happening, can see just too well how worried mom and dad are.
