Quebec Cancer Foundation 2019 Fund-Raising Campaign. 1 Canadian in 2 will have to deal with cancer over their lifetime. WE MUST SUPPORT THEM

april 26, 2019

In the pursuit of its guiding principle: "1 Canadian in 2 will have to deal with cancer over a lifetime: We must support them," the Quebec Cancer Foundation launches its 2019 fund-raising campaign for the Mauricie region.

Reaching the goal of $576,000 for the Mauricie region will allow the Foundation to fulfill its mission to support victims and their families on a day-to-day basis.

Once again this year, Jean-François and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin have accepted the role of campaign presidents. As well-known personalities, they will carry the Foundation's important message to everyone, while focusing on business people in the Mauricie region, making them aware of the difficulties faced by local people affected by cancer.

In Quebec, 1 in 2 people will have to live with cancer and its effects in one way or another.

The Foundation provides services that focus on the daily needs and concerns of people suffering from the terrible disease as well as their close support people who are thus also affected by the disease. The Foundation intervenes directly with these individuals, listens, informs, and provides them with an essential degree of comfort, companionship and accommodations.

"We are happy to have a campaign team made up of committed people and, of course, including the renewed support of Jean-François and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin. Each of us believes that it is possible to improve the daily lives of people affected directly and indirectly by cancer. To do this, we need the support of the public and the business community. Everyone must feel concerned so that we can continue to deliver on our commitment to the Mauritians whose lives are affected by cancer," says Luce Girard, Director, Centre Region and Trois-Rivieres Accomodation Centre.

Jean-François and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin are convinced of the unique and crucial role the Foundation plays in the Mauricie region and throughout Quebec, in improving the quality of life of people dealing with cancer. To this end, the brothers will continue for a fourth year their contribution to the Foundation, donating all the profits from their personal campaign, "The Race Against Cancer", thereby demonstrating their generosity and commitment towards those affected by this disease.

The brothers also lent their names to the Foundation's "One Or The Other" campaigns in 2017 and 2018.

"We were proud to see the public's enthusiasm for our campaign. We have chosen this cause because our family has been closely impacted by cancer over the years. Even today, a very close friend is suffering from the disease. Given this experience, we decided several years ago to do something and take an active part in the Quebec Cancer Foundation. This announcement confirms our continued commitment to the cause," the Dumoulin brothers declared.
