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.

We are pleased to introduce Talking to Children about Cancer, a great new Hope & Cope resource for young families in which a parent has cancer. Written in clear, simple language and available in English and French, this beautifully illustrated, meticulously researched booklet is available through our En famille program.  Talking to Children about Cancer
