A Special Message from

OPACC's Board Chair

Dear friends of OPACC,

 

What a year 2020 has been! As we come to the end of such an unprecedented year, we can reflect on what has helped get us through this year. For me, OPACC has helped me get through! In fact, OPACC has helped me since the day I discovered this amazing organization. 

 

When my son was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma, I felt truly lost and alone. When I found OPACC, I also found a group of parents who understood what I was going through. After my son finished treatment, I started a parent support group in Kitchener-Waterloo to help others. With the support of OPACC, we have been able to grow our group and offer families the support they need. Parent support groups are key to help on the childhood cancer journey. This past year we have supported families with gift cards for gas, Starbucks, groceries, masks, Comfy Cases pillowcases, and so much more! 

 

This year more than ever families need emotional and financial support. OPACC can help offer that. We have adapted to provide on-line and phone support. This year more than ever we need your help. Thank-you for being a supporter of OPACC. We wish you all the best for 2021. Stay safe my friends!

 

Sincerely,

Helen Robertson
