Pediatric cancer, it is as a team that we will beat it!
- In Canada, cancer strikes 1 in 400 children under the age of 15
- More than half of children are under 5 years old when diagnosed
- And it is the leading cause of illness-related death among young people.
Thanks to the Charles-Bruneau Foundation and the CHEO Foundation, children in Quebec and
Ontario can receive support, from day 1 of their diagnosis, in care facilities specially designed for
them. This is an important element, because this place will become their second home for the
next 2 or 3 years, on average.
They also benefit from significant and numerous advances in research, giving them hope for a
healthy future. When you support the Charles-Bruneau Foundation and the CHEO Foundation,
you are giving world-class scientists the resources they need to continue to make cancer
treatments safer and more delicate. Research teams are making progress on important
discoveries that will revolutionize cancer care of tomorrow while treating patients of today.
Whether the research is performed in Quebec or Ontario, all Canadian children and more
benefit from it.
You can make a difference in the lives of these families: by registering for 24h Tremblant or by
supporting a participant with a donation!
Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month may be over, but this time of year reminds us that to beat
this terrible disease, we must rally together throughout the year.
Thank you for taking action alongside us: we are stronger together!
