Caregiving is often a role you take on with little to no planning in advance.

The responsibilities are wide-ranging and many of them may be new to you. Even so, caring for your loved one is rewarding and learning to be a caregiver can help you provide the best possible care for your loved.

As a parent it is very difficult to see her suffer and not know whether she are going to come out of this. However, we were able to find support from the great doctors, nurses, the Light The Night team, and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.


I am so thankful from the bottom of my heart that life, research and science gave my son the chance to be healthy again today. No matter what happens, I know that every day is a gift from life, and we have to live each one to the fullest.
