Leucan Celebrates its 40th Anniversary at the CHU Sainte-Justine

Last night, Leucan’s 40th anniversary took the place of honour as part of a ceremony celebrating the unique partnership between Leucan, the CHU Sainte-Justine and the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation.

The event was a great opportunity to recognize the steadfast collaboration that has been uniting those three organizations for many years, as well as the efforts made by Leucan to champion clinical research and provide distinctive and tailored support services to children and families, at every stage of cancer and its effects, for 40 years now.

The entire Leucan team is deeply moved and delighted to have had this chance to share this important milestone with members, employees, partners, and volunteers. Many thanks to the CHU Sainte-Justine and the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation. It was a night filled with emotions, pride, and hope—mirroring our past 40 years of partnership.
