A Campaign Focused on the Long and Difficult Journey to Recovery

Throughout the arduous journey imposed by childhood cancer, which can last several years, families experience a series of extremely painful emotions. They are forever transformed by cancer.

That is why your participation is essential!

Help Leucan to make as many Quebecers as possible aware of the reality and the stages that families of cancer-stricken children must go through. Thus, we invite you to link your sparkling participation and publication to one or more of the stages of cancer; your reason for shining bright for Leucan.

  • For children who have to go back to school without hair, with a different appearance;
  • For brothers and sisters who feel powerless in the face of their sibling’s disease;
  • For children who relapse;
  • For parents who have to quit their jobs to stay at their child’s bedside;
  • For families who can finally go home together;
  • For all children in remission;
  • For children whose resilience knows no bounds.

Together, let’s send a strong message of solidarity and love to all families affected by childhood cancer.
