remembering larissa

“Having the freedom to celebrate your child in a safe community without worrying about upsetting other parents whose children are still fighting cancer is a gift. Bereaved parents are their worst nightmare, we’re the Bad News Bearers and our journeys are so different. Theirs is one of hope and ours is one of remembering. Having a space where we could truly honour Larissa was so healing.”—Marggie Marks on 2014 Bereaved Family Camp.

After fasting for over 15 hours, little Liam woke up ravenous after surgery. Chowing down before Mom could even slice him a piece of banana bread he scarfed the loaf down nearly whole.

Whether or not bone cancer spreads to the lungs could mean life or death for a child. And yet, we still don’t know why and how some bone cancers spread. But with your support, Dr. Michael Monument is exploring these vital questions.

When David Dallas was 12 years old and undergoing cancer treatments, his hands became so blistered from the chemotherapy he couldn’t play his guitar. What kept him going at that time was the thought of playing his guitar again. Now, your support is keeping him going.

When Mason lost his hair to chemotherapy in 2013 and returned to school later that year, he returned with a full moustache. Sporting a brand new mock moustachio every day became this little guy’s strategy for deflecting attention from his baldness, so he wouldn’t have to talk about his cancer.

every bead tells a story

If you looked inside the homes of children affected by cancer, tucked away inside a closet or a drawer, you would find a tangle of colourful beads. Red beads, yellow beads, turquoise, pink, glow-in-the-dark beads. Part of the standard of care for children with cancer, the Beads of Courage program help children understand the complex and often painful medical procedures they experience. Each bead represents a milestone in the trek against cancer and each one tells a unique story of courage and hope.

From a young age, Luca showed signs of exceptional intelligence. Luca’s doctor was sure he was gifted. Just as his parents grew used to the idea of sending him to a gifted school, everything changed. At age four, Luca was diagnosed with a brain tumour and required months of high-dose chemotherapy and radiation. Today, Luca is a shadow of his former self. Learning is challenging and he’s struggling at school. “He’s changed so much because of what the treatment has done to his brain. He’s so little and he’s completely heartbroken.”— Luca’s mother Amber.
