The Quebec Cancer Foundation and MOVE 50+ are partnering to promote a healthy lifestyle and optimize support for people dealing with cancer.
MOVE50+ is an interactive platform containing a range of training videos specially designed for the needs of people aged 50 and over. By associating itself with this project, which was developed under the auspices of Sercovie Inc. and financed in part by the Ministère de la Famille, the Quebec Cancer Foundation wants to provide wider, easier access, to quality training from the comfort of your own home, at any time and in a safe, structured format.
“This partnership is one more outcome of the main pillars of our 2020-2022 strategic plan: Being closer to people (in French only) and is allowing us to get a little closer to our goal of providing tangible support to all Quebecers affected by the disease. Through this collaboration, we hope to enable all our beneficiaries to adopt a healthy lifestyle in complete safety, and without constraints” says Quebec Cancer Foundation Director General Marco Décelles.
The Quebec Cancer Foundation is the only organization in Quebec that helps every Quebecer dealing with cancer, regardless of the type or stage, regardless of their region, and regardless of their age. Among other things, it offers a range of physical wellness programs recognized by the medical community that help ease the daily lives of people with cancer. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Foundation has expanded its online services considerably. Our association with MOVE 50+ reflects our desire to stay close to our people, despite physical distance, by offering safe ways to stay healthy following a cancer diagnosis.
By mobilizing their strengths, these two organizations are giving concrete expression to their common desire to improve the well-being of Quebecers with cancer. “Sercovie is delighted with this new collaboration. The training videos developed in the context of the MOVE 50+ project will contribute to the continuum of services offered by the Quebec Cancer Foundation and encourage the adoption and maintenance of an active lifestyle during and after the illness” declared Sercovie's Director General, Rémi Demers.
Since its inception, the Quebec Cancer Foundation has helped over half a million Quebecers.
