2022 Spreading Warmth for the Cause

We did it! The scarf sale is over and together, we were able to raise $1450.00 to help Cedars CanSupport in its mission of offering support and comfort to cancer patients, survivors and care givers. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone who contributed, either by purchasing scarves or buying and donating them back to cancer patients. Your support will go a long way in helping alleviate the experience of living with cancer for many people. Thank you 🙂!

2022 Cedars Run for Ovarian Cancer

Hundreds of walkers and runners, many wearing elaborate team costumes, took to the streets of Town of Mount Royal on Sunday, October 16, for the 7th annual Cedars Run for Ovarian Cancer. The event, which raised over $120,000, is the signature annual fundraiser for the Dagenais Joly-Smith Fund, and all proceeds support the DOvEEgene project, under the leadership of Dr. Lucy Gilbert, Director of Gynecologic Oncology at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC).

2022 Tite Frette Campaign Généreuse

My name is Vanessa, and I am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed in January 2017 at the age of 29. As unlucky as I was, I was extremely lucky and grateful to be treated and cared for by Dr. Flieszer, Dr. Bouganim and their teams at the Cedars Cancer Centre at the MUHC. My husband and I had the opportunity to use our passion to raise money through our new store, Tite Frette Brossard, by selling a Mimosa beer brewed for our "Campaign Généreuse" where we accumulated 1$ for each can sold to donate to a foundation of our choice. We also held an event in our store with the Fédération des clubs d'affaires du Quebec where we raised another 250$ to add to our donation. We are honoured to choose to have the total proceeds of 600$ donated to the Cedar's Cancer foundation. These funds will support both Dr. Fleiszer's Clinical Education Fund and Dr. Bouganim's Medical Oncology Research & Care fund. Thank you for being you and for your excellent care! We hope this helps you continue to provide care for others as you did so wondrously for me.

Cedars’ Virtual Auction and Raffle 2020

We owe a round of thanks and gratitude for the outpouring of support at the 2020 Cedars Virtual Auction and Raffle which took place LIVE on Tuesday, December 15. Hosted by CJAD 800 AM Morning Man Andrew Carter, the event was a resounding success raising in excess of $450,000 and counting. This year’s event included a moving tribute to the late Joe Cheaib, Vice Chair of the Foundation, and past co-chair of the Raffle & Auction Soirée. Joe had a generosity of spirit and warmth that was so inspirational to all. He will be forever in our hearts.

Annual Appeal 2020

It’s been a year unlike most. This was a year filled with hope, and filled with heartache. We postponed our primary fundraisers due to the pandemic, and have increased our humanitarian aid both locally and abroad. Our heartache included the loss of cherished loved ones and community leaders. It included tens of thousands of Quebecers and millions worldwide being affected by this virus. But throughout, and forever forward, we will maintain a singular focus - since cancer has not and will not take a pause.
