As a parent of a survivor of childhood cancer, Val has first hand knowledge of the needs of children with cancer and their families. Through her role with the Kids with Cancer Society she meets families at the time of diagnosis ensuring that they have access to programs throughout their treatment, survivorship and beyond. One of Val’s greatest strengths lies within the area of advocacy. Her vast knowledge of childhood cancer issues, and the unique challenges has resulted in support provided both on local, national, and international levels.
