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 booklets, children’s workshops, home-cooked meals (Kerry’s Kitchen) lovingly prepared by volunteers, 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 at 514 340-8222, ext. 22591.
