The Quebec Cancer Foundation is a participant in the Aviva Community Fund (ACF) competition. For eight years, Aviva has been investing in places where it does business by supporting ideas for community projects all across Canada.

Our idea was accepted!
The project submitted by the Foundation is aimed at developing specific tools to better support 15 to 39 year-olds diagnosed with cancer in their daily lives. Countless testimonies confirm that when a diagnosis of cancer occurs, young people have a thousand and one questions and do not know where to turn for answers.

The team from the Quebec Cancer Foundation has the expertise, knowledge and contacts to provide this support, but relies on funding to expand the service offering of its Programme à Félix.

Part 1
Creating video clips to provide answers, tips and practical advice, tips for real-life situations.

Part 2
Developing a platform for exchanges between young people with cancer that will allow them to share their experiences and information of all kinds, so that they no longer feel alone in this experience.

We believe we can help these teenagers and young adults in a concrete, effective way. Once developed and tested, these tools will be put online and be accessible to all Quebecers.

Every vote counts! Here's how you can help:

The voting period will run from October 10 to 19, 2017. Your gesture can make all the difference in the lives of these young people and their families. TOGETHER, we have the power to support the adults of tomorrow.

Thank you in advance for your vote!

Bruno Pelletier, spokesperson for the Quebec Cancer Foundation
