President and CEO’s message

Dear Friends:
It is with great pride that I have assumed the role as President and CEO of the Cedars Cancer Foundation. My sense of the strength and success of what Cedars has accomplished in more than 50 years and today, to see what a difference we make at the MUHC has been soundly affirmed. We are blessed with an extremely engaged and committed Board of Directors, Medical Advisory Committee and wonderful staff and group of volunteers that enable Cedars to assist cancer patients and their families. Our members, donors and sponsors are second- to- none and truly exemplify what it means to be philanthropic in raising much-needed funds to purchase the best state-of-the-art diagnostic oncology equipment, fund programs, cancer research, fellowships, education and of course to support our Cedars CanSupport program and Sarah’s Fund in pediatric hematology-oncology.

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.

Dr. Armen Aprikian
Chief, Cancer Care Mission of the MUHC
