Help a ladybug on her journey while supporting cancer-stricken children
MONTRÉAL, April 27, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ – Jean-Sébastien Beaulne, a Leucan member and parent, created a mobile game called Camie to thank Leucan for the services provided to his son Émile during his fight against cancer.
When his son Émile was diagnosed with cancer, Jean-Sébastien Beaulne’s life was turned upside down. This terrible news shook up his routine and he lost all his bearings. However, he was able to count on the daily support of the staff of Leucan who listened to him and was there for him through the rollercoaster ride of illness. To express his gratitude to Leucan, he created the Camie mobile game, which launched yesterday.
“When you play the game, you become Camie, a ladybug who must face enemies bigger and more powerful than she is, just like my son did during his fight against cancer,” explains the game creator. In addition, Camie must fulfill a crucial mission: eradicate the aphids that have infested the tree and that spend their days eating its leaves, which is harmful to the tree, to draw the analogy with cancer even further. To reach her goal, Camie possesses a few competitive advantages, including the ability to move very fast and to fly for a few seconds at a time, but she must also be on her guard from enemies such as a giant spider and a crow who appear from time to time and attempt to capture her.
