Autumn was an action-packed season for the Quebec Cancer Foundation. In Gatineau, Quebec City, Montreal, Trois-Rivières and Sherbrooke, the Cancerto series raised $350,270 while bringing hope and comfort to so many affected by cancer.

Last month’s Cancerto series staged benefit shows across the province. Mr. Marco Décelles, Director General of the Quebec Cancer Foundation, thanked everyone who contributed to the success of the Cancerto evenings, whether as donors, partners, members of the business and medical community or the Quebec population, for demonstrating their solidarity with those afflicted with cancer.

Each unique Cancerto soirée is serving as a celebration of life that combines music and magic and brings people together to pay tribute to the courage of those touched by cancer.
