Laval Families Magazine was launched on October 30, 2012 with only 20,000 copies, and today we are circulating 40,000 copies! THANK YOU, READERS!As we are growing so are our readers and the city of Laval.

For the first time since our inception, we have two feature cover stories:

One of our featured stories, “A Story of Courage, Love and Persistence” talks about a newlywed couple that stayed strong through many trials, proving that love does conquer all. Armoured with love and courage, the couple beat a life-threatening disease that affected the groom. United they conquered, and united they remain.

Our second story, “The Power of Humanity” is about Fred Levine, a father of four, who was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer. Not feeling sorry for himself, he decided to write/illustrate children’s books to raise funds for brain cancer research. His courageous journey inspired so many people, and today, volunteers from everywhere want to help.
