Leucan and Sotheby's International Realty Quebec Partnership



    MONTREAL, Dec. 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Leucan, the Association for children
with cancer, is pleased to announce its partnership with Sotheby's
International Realty Quebec, who confirmed a financial support from its
management and agents. Liza Kaufman, the managing director, made the
announcement on December 11th during the launch party of Sotheby's
International Realty Quebec's new office in Westmount. Mrs. Kaufman told the
more than 300 guests that a successful business must have a social conscience
and that we must make it our priority to give back to the community. "Leucan
is a wonderful cause that deserves more attention", stated Mrs Kaufman in her
inaugural speech. Future plans in this direction will include special
advertising opportunities for Leucan coupled with Sotheby's regional and local
marketing campaigns. "Our goal is to help Leucan to continue their good works
on a broader basis".
    At the dawn of its 30th anniversary, Leucan is delighted by this
partnership that will allow the Association to reinforce its links and
increase its visibility in the Anglophone community. Leucan is present in
Sainte-Justine UHC, in the Centre Mère-enfant du CHUQ (Quebec City) and in the
CHUS (Sherbrooke), but also offers its services in Montreal Children's
Hospital of the McGill University Health Centre.
    For more than twenty years, Leucan welcomes children with cancer and
their families for a two-week camp, the Leucan-CSN summer camp, where a
medical team is volunteering. Moreover, Leucan distinguishes itself in Canada
and abroad, particularly in France and in Italy, by collaborations in specific
fields such as research, massage therapy or the organization of summer camps
for children with cancer, among other things. Besides, Leucan recently
participated in the Integrated Oncology Society's annual conference in
Massachusetts.

    Leucan is a non-profit organization founded in 1978. Its mission is to
enhance the well-being, healing and recovery of children with cancer and
ensure support for their families. Besides its headquarters in Montreal,
Leucan is present in nine regions in Quebec and has more than 7,000 members.
