Situated in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Cedars Cancer Foundation has been leading the way in charitable donations for nearly fifty years. Cedars Cancer Foundation is a hospital-based charity whose mission is to support comprehensive cancer care for all cancer patients – pediatric, adolescent and young adult (AYA), adults and those in palliative care – who are being treated at the MUHC.

Cedars Cancer Foundation provides a range of free services and support programs to look after the minds, bodies and spirits of cancer patients.

  • Support exceptional care – prevention, diagnosis and treatment, post treatment, supportive care and palliative care – for the youngest pediatric patients to adolescents and adults
