The Fondation Charles-Bruneau

About the Charles-Bruneau Foundation

The Charles-Bruneau Foundation helps children with cancer from everywhere in the province. The Foundation is proud to be the largest funder of pediatric hematology oncology research in Quebec.

The latest commitments announced are necessary to allow major breakthroughs in research.

By 2022 :

  • $ 22 million will be invested in the Unité de recherche en hémato-oncologie pédiatrique Charles-Bruneau at CHU Sainte-Justine
  • $ 4 million will also be donated to the Montreal Children's Hospital

Two objectives will serve to guide researchers: finding a cure for the 20% of children whose cancer is resistant to treatment, and improving the quality of life of children in remission so that they can enjoy a true recovery. While these commitments are ambitious, the Foundation is confident that it can count on its loyal partners and the people.

Over the past 29 years, the sum of $15 million has been invested in research, and an additional $40 million has gone toward the construction, procurement and development of a Cancer Centre, a research center and three Charles-Bruneau units in Québec.

Children who fight against cancer have infinite strength and courage. They are pounding and combative. The tattoo being the icon par excellence of fighters, IGA will offer, from May 30 to June 12, a collection of temporary tattoos for the benefit of the Fondation Charles-Bruneau at a cost of $2.
