Message from Chief, MUHC Cancer Care Mission
The sad reality is that 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, while 1 in 4 will die from the disease. Moreover, Quebec has the second highest rate of new cancer diagnoses in the country. The good news is that more and more people are surviving due to major advancements in diagnosis and treatment.
Our vision for the Cedars Cancer Centre is one that is influenced by the integration of compassionate care, innovative research and inspiring education. As the MUHC is the largest academic centre for cancer care in the McGill network, we take our responsibility for the care of the population very seriously.
To realize our ambitious goals, we count on the sustained investments of the government and of our generous patrons and partners, which range from individuals to large corporations. In other words, benefactors make an immense impact on our achievements.
The relentless team at the Cedars Cancer Centre is world class due, in large part, to the support from the Cedars Cancer Foundation, supporting compassionate care, innovative research and inspiring education. We have your back; thank you for having ours!
