Surprise a CHILD!
Having a child diagnosed with cancer is not just a medical journey - it is a terribly difficult and heart-wrenching emotional experience for everyone close to the child.
Although medical treatments and outcomes are unique to the individuals, the feelings and behaviours that follow diagnosis show commonality regardless of location and background. It is how we learn to cope. At Monty's Corner, we would like to encourage families to celebrate every positive milestone you experience. Below are a few examples of what may be a positive milestone:
Going into remission
First time coming home from the hospital
Birthday while on treatment
Staying in the hospital during festive seasons such as Christmas
Being brave during radiotherapy (it can be scary for young children)
Completing all treatments
...and many more reasons
Monty is there with you to spread encouragement and hope!
Please get in touch with us to arrange a Monty Gift for the Child you care.
Please contact us early in advance if you are aiming for a specific date.

Call from Canada - Open to all!
A new University of British Columbia Research Project has begun - Maternal Caregivers of Paediatric Brain Tumour Survivors in Canada: Investigating our Lived Experiences
"No one has studied mothers who care-give for paediatric brain tumour survivors in Canada. We are often socially alienated by the work we perform for our survivor, and we are definitely financially challenged, as we can only work part-time, if at all." says Susan Lymbery, EdD(c), Doctoral Candidate Researcher & Caregiver. Contact Susan on firstname.lastname@example.org to share your experience to contribute to her research project.
