Montreal, September 27, 2017 - The Quebec Cancer Foundation, in collaboration with its spokesperson, Bruno Pelletier, are celebrating their five-year association by producing a documentary. Throughout this time, their common goal has been to do good in the lives of people with cancer by supporting them in their day-to-day. This led to the idea of ​​making a video that would show the positive impact that not only the Foundation, but also every donor, partner and volunteer can have on the lives of those living through this ordeal.

“Given that one in two Quebecers will face cancer in the course of their lives, I was looking for an idea that would help the public be more aware of the Foundation and the services it offers. And what better way to do this than to actually go out and meet with those who know the Foundation best! These include people who have benefited from its services, the health professionals themselves, and people who are involved as volunteers. We were able to capture some extraordinary moments that provide concrete testimony of the essential role played by the organization,” explains Bruno Pelletier.

The documentary is also a tribute to all those who support the mission of the Quebec Cancer Foundation; their contribution alleviates the burden of those affected by cancer in the most positive ways.

The Foundation wishes to thank Bruno Pelletier for the invaluable support he has given for so many years. We also wish to thank the donors. Each contribution has such an immense impact on the everyday lives of Quebecers dealing with cancer.
