La Fondation québécoise du cancer : du rêve à la réalité

Co-written by 3 of the co-founders of the Quebec Cancer Foundation : Dr. Pierre Audet-Lapointe, Dr. Pierre Band et Dr. Michel Gélinas, the book accurately and emotionally retraces the beautiful story of the Foundation since its inception: the story of five medical specialists who wanted to see their dream come true, to transform the ways that things were done in their field in that era, by finding inspiration in the best practices worldwide and implementing them in Quebec—at a time when many thought that the cancer issue would soon be resolved.
