Leucan provides families with financial assistance to help them cope with unforeseen expenses arising from their child’s illness. 

Families of cancer-stricken children have greater financial needs, with new expenses getting added to their regular budget: 

  • Travel, accommodation, and meal expenses during the treatments and medical follow-ups 
  • Child-minding for their other children during the time spent at the hospital 
  • Loss of income if one parent takes a leave from work to stay with the sick child during treatments and hospital stays 

Grants 

  • An Initial Grant of $500 is automatically allocated to all families of a newly diagnosed child regardless of income. 
  • Depending on your child’s individual treatment protocol, you will receive a quarterly support grant to compensate for part of the financial constraints of your new reality. 
  • If you find yourself in a difficult financial situation, the Emergency Fund can help to cover essential needs such as living expenses.
