Outpouring of compassion across the province!

When it comes to helping people with cancer and their loved ones better cope with the disease, the Quebec Cancer Foundation needs everyone’s participation. All of us can do our part to make life just a little bit easier for those facing hard times.
As spokesperson for the Foundation, I have travelled to many regions of Quebec. I’m here to tell you that across the entire province, people everywhere are generous. Donors, volunteers and event organizers all rally together for the cause with great enthusiasm.
While I can’t accept all the invitations I receive, I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the dedicated individuals who give of their time and energy to organize fundraising activities. The Foundation is proud to be able to count on these valuable allies, who turned over $454,000 to the Foundation last year. Some community events even return, year after year. Examples include Détendez-vous pour la cause by Nordik Spa-Nature, the Ghislaine Ritchie Golf Classic, the Déjeuners du commandant by the Sureté du Québec and the Défi vélo La Coop. Take a look at the donor recognition list on the Foundation Website and see for yourself everything these committed folks accomplish.
I am extremely grateful for their generosity and I know the entire team at the Foundation is as well. It is through their involvement that, every year, thousands of Quebecers with cancer have access to services that meet real needs.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks!
