With back to school and back to work in full swing, September marks the return to regular life. However, for children undergoing cancer treatments, September takes on a different meaning since they are going to the hospital rather than going back to school and will spend their days in the company of nurses and doctors rather than with teachers and classmates. September was named “Childhood Cancer Awareness Month” in their honour.

Leucan uses this special month as an opportunity to raise awareness among the public about the school reality of cancer-stricken children. Via its School Awareness Program, Leucan facilitates the education of children with cancer and their siblings, and provides both families and the educational community with appropriate support. Over the last school year, Leucan’s team met with 3,626 students in elementary schools across the province.

Quebecers are invited to show clear support for cancer-stricken children by proudly posting the Gold Ribbon, symbol of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, on social media throughout September. This support can be demonstrated by making a donation to Leucan as well. In addition, elementary schools across Quebec can sign up for the 2015 Leucan Halloween Money Box Campaign, a fundraising initiative by children for children.
