Assistance and support to families

In my opinion, Leucan is like a ray of sunshine in the middle of dark clouds, indeed storm clouds. Leucan represents a sympathetic ear, a comforting presence, an absolutely crucial support when strong feelings sweep through dads, moms, brothers, sisters, and all the loved ones of cancer-stricken children. I could not imagine Quebec families going through this terrible hardship without the support of this truly vital organization.Louise, member mom of Leucan

A cancer diagnosis has a major impact on the family unit. Leucan is available from the very beginning to support its members. Leucan’s team looks after families at every stage of the disease by providing them with specific and personalized services.

A team of Leucan is available in every pediatric oncology centre in Quebec and in one centre in Ontario:

  • CHU Sainte-Justine
  • Montreal Children’s Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC)
  • Centre mère-enfant Soleil du Centre hospitalier universitaire de Québec (CHUQ)
  • Centre hospitalier universitaire de Sherbrooke (CHUS)
  • Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO)
