Roger Desrochers hopes the New Year will bring him a successful stem cell transplant, but as Christmas approaches he's focusing on giving back to the family members who've supported him since he was diagnosed with leukemia. Sitting in his quiet hospital room at the McGill University Health Centre, Desrochers smiles at the thought of surprising his wife, brother, sister, and nieces with gifts.

The initiative is called the "Gift of Giving" and it's run by the Cedars Cancer Centre for patients in the hospital's palliative, oncology, hematology and transplant units.
