Did you know? Leucan is present in schools.

When children are diagnosed with cancer, they leave behind their friends and classmates for an indefinite period. Those friends and classmates can be sad and worried for their sick friend and have many questions.

Upon returning to school after a long hospital stay, children and their families can experience a high level of stress. Catching up on school work, trying to focus, getting bullied because of their new physical appearance (hair loss, weight gain or loss, amputation), or feeling uncomfortable about the treatment they will have to do in school: it’s a lot to take! That’s why the entire family needs support at this crucial stage of their child’s development.

Your contribution to the Leucan Halloween Money Box Campaign plays such a crucial role. Thanks to you, Leucan is there to support cancer-stricken children and their families, but also the teachers and classmates. The following testimonials are testament to the importance of Leucan’s School Awareness Program.
