En Famille

Practical resources and support to young families coping with cancer

En famille artParenting can be challenging at the best of times. When a parent has cancer, life gets a whole lot tougher. This Hope & Cope program, geared towards the needs of young families coping with cancer, was launched officially on November 12, 2009.

Comprehensive resource kits, children’s workshops, parent support groups, home-cooked meals lovingly prepared by volunteers belonging to what is affectionately known as Kerry’s Kitchen, grocery coupons, a library with age-appropriate books and resources are just some of the components of this unique program. For information and support, please contact the En famille Coordinator(s) at 514 340-8222, ext. 22591 or 24854.

We left with arms full of gifts – from delicious foods for dinner to stuffed animals and books to help our children accept cancer and understand that we are not the only family dealing with the disease and its consequences… all this help, all those sweet thoughts and attention and, above all, all this welcoming attitude made the four of us us feel a lot better during a rough time. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are.

CJ does a happy dance after being informed that she won two free tickets to see Amy Schumer tonight at the Bell Centre! CJ is a huge Amy Schumer fan, and laughter and humour helped her cope during her cancer treatments. Thanks to the anonymous donor for this wonderful gesture.
