What's New

You probably know that in June 2010, I was given the kind of news no one ever wants to hear. I never thought it could happen to me, but it did. It was colon cancer and I was going to need surgery and chemotherapy. The news hit hard. Luckily, the doctors, nurses and volunteers at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont took great care of me right away. Throughout my ordeal, they were there to support me with dedication, kindness and empathy, right up to the day I was cured. This year, I’m celebrating five years of remission! Imagine the relief and unbelievable joy I feel! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that my cancer will remain a thing of the past. Other than that, my only other wish is to see all cancer patients derive strength from the same hope that kept me going. And I am committed to lending them my voice. That’s why, for over five years, I’ve been rallying everyone I know around building the HMR’s Integrated Cancer Centre, a single site where cancer patients will be able to benefit from warm, outstanding care and leading-edge technology. Believe me, that can make all the difference! We’re already two thirds of the way there. Of the $12 million cost of the project, there’s only $4 million left to go! Knowing how generous you are and how much you love your hospital, I’d like you to do like me and contribute to the HMR Foundation. You know as well as I do that our hospital is a little-known gem and that it deserves our community’s support. Today, the oncology team needs your support to continue offering the most advanced care with all the human warmth it has become famous for. Thank you for answering my appeal. Your goodness is one of the beautiful things in life. I hope I can count on you. And remember: you’ll always be able to count on me because I’ll always be there for you. I’ve been there and I can tell you that what really matters is being cared for by attentive and dedicated people who have access to the best treatment options. By contributing to the Integrated Cancer Centre through a one-off or monthly donation, this is what you’ll make possible for patients fighting cancer. Again, thank you!   BOUTON_Make-a-gift
Diagnosed with breast cancer last July and treated at the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, singer Lulu Hughes quickly offered her support to Dominique Michel, the volunteer spokesperson for the Integrated Cancer Centre fund development campaign, to help Dodo with her fundraising efforts. Their objective: To raise the $12M required for construction of the future HMR Integrated Cancer Centre “It was important to me. Although I am receiving extraordinary care at the HMR, I am also aware that the hospital has urgent needs. I am supporting Dodo and the HMR Foundation as a patron because the Integrated Cancer Centre will make an enormous difference in the life of patients and their families, while contributing to the advancement of medical breakthroughs to treat cancer.” On November 3rd, she will be joining Dominique Michel and several other friends from the entertainment world to celebrate two milestones: 5 years of remission for Dodo and the 5th anniversary of the À Votre Santé!  benefit. “I am so fortunate to be able to count on Lulu Hughes. We are united in the face of hardship and we share the same fight,” said spokesperson Dominique Michel. “If I am in remission today, I owe it all to the excellent care provided at the HMR. I got involved for all of the patients that I met and for all of those who will be faced with this terrible diagnostic. At my age, I dream of seeing them break ground for the Integrated Cancer Centre. We have already reached the eight-million-dollar mark in five years. We can’t stop now, because this project is vital!” To find out more about the Integrated Cancer Centre To lend your support to Dodo: Donate online or buy a J’appuie Dodo wristband

The major campaigns and various events organized by the HMR Foundation as well as our annual campaigns have enabled the Foundation to contribute financially to the development of several large-scale HMR projects, including:
Research at the HMR: At the Heart of Your Future

The HMR Research Centre (CRHMR) is involved in fundamental, translational and clinical research activities in keeping with its clinical axes of excellence: Immunology-Oncology; Cellular Therapy; Vision Health; Nephrology. By supporting research, the HMR Foundation enables the hospital to remain a leader in many fields and supports innovation at the CRHMR.   In 2010, the Foundation contributed over 1.3 million dollars for start-up funds, clinical PhD programs and to provide income support for young researchers. Moreover, in view of the necessary upgrade of the CRHMR equipment pool, a significant portion of this amount enabled the Centre to purchase new equipment. Thanks to […]

The Centre of Excellence for Cellular Therapy

Among the most modern regenerative medicine centres in the world, the Centre of Excellence for Cellular Therapy (CECT) enables the HMR to continue its cutting edge research on stem cells, the immune system, cancer, ophthalmology and even orthopedics in order to develop treatments for a variety of illnesses as well as to play a key role in training young researchers and to bridge the gap between fundamental and clinical research. The Centre of Excellence for Cellular Therapy (CECT) opened in 2012 thanks to such clinical research visionaries as Drs Denis Claude Roy, Jean Roy, Guy Sauvageau and Claude Perreault.

The 2015 annual report of the HMR Foundation is now available. In 2015, we remained focused on supporting HMR’s strategic directions and better meeting patient needs. For the fifth year in a row, the HMR Foundation has ranked among the top 100 largest and best managed of Canada’s 160,000 non-profits and charitable organizations (Source: MoneySense Magazine). As honoured as we are about receiving this distinction, credit also must be given to our loyal donors, volunteers and partners who support us through their outstanding commitment.

Every day, some 50 patients undergo chemotherapy treatments in the HMR Oncology Department. Those receiving these treatments sometimes have to spend as much as eight hours sitting down. The HMR Foundation appealed for donations in order to purchase new treatment chairs that can better accommodate patients’ needs. Hundreds of donors contributed to the campaign and as a result, the needs have been met... at least for now. We’d like to thank these donors from the bottom of our hearts!
