On November 3, over 200 people gathered at the DoubleTree by Hilton Gatineau-Ottawa for an event presented as part of the 6th edition of Cancerto, under this year’s theme “De coeur et de rythme”. The event, which featured a cocktail reception followed by a highly emotional performance delivered by Kim Richardson, raised $70,800. These people had all come together in a show of solidarity for the Foundation's programs and services, which every year provide support to thousands affected by cancer, not only in Outaouais, but throughout the Province of Quebec.
 
The Quebec Cancer Foundation wishes to thank everyone who contributed so generously to the success of the evening: Familiprix (Johanne Giguère), RBC Gestion de patrimoine (Steve Bouthillette), the business and medical community as well as the people of Outaouais, who together demonstrated such great solidarity.
 
Since its creation in 2012, the Cancerto series has raised over $2 million province-wide. The funds raised have allowed thousands of people impacted by the disease to access the services and programs that promote their wellbeing on a daily basis. Cancerto, which is presented in a variety of formats in Sherbrooke, Montreal, Quebec City, Gatineau and Trois-Rivières, is intended as a celebration of life delivered through an array of performances, magical moments and unique meetings that pay tribute to the courage of those affected by cancer.
