THREE. A Heartfelt Read
The Days That Are Given Us is an intimate look into the life of a family afflicted by childhood cancer. Follow their story as they take on the challenges and struggles of fighting infant leukemia. See how Lucian, diagnosed at the tender age of six months, brought together a Saskatchewan family in a way they didn’t even know they needed. Whether it was staying in the hospital for weeks on end, dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy, or adjusting to a life of isolation, Lucian made sure to seize every day and make the most of his circumstances. Nothing is held back in this first-hand account from the parents who experienced the emotional highs and lows of having such a bright and beautiful son fight such a deadly and aggressive disease.
