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

Hope & Cope

Dr. Albert Chan, a psychologist at Maggie's Centre in Hong Kong, paid a visit to our Wellness Centre to learn more about our approach. Maggie's Centres provide practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

Dr. Chan provides one-on-one counselling, family counselling and runs a weekly men's support group. He was most impressed with the Wellness Centre and with our use of cancer experienced volunteers, a model that he believes would work well in China but would not be appropriate for Hong Kong.

Dr Albert Chan, psychologue au Centre Maggie's, a visité notre Centre de bien-être, afin d'en apprendre plus sur notre approche. Il a été fortement impressionné par notre Centre et par les services assurés par des bénévoles, fortes de leur expérience du cancer, modèle exemplaire qu'il croiit pourrait être appliqué en Chine, mais ne pourrait pas servir à Hong Kong.
