“When I was 21, I learned that I had
a leukemia. After two years
of treatments, they told me that
I may never be a mother.
It was a terrible shock.

Despite all of this, ten years later,
I am still here… and I am immensely
happy to introduce my little Valentina!”

The HMR Foundation wishes to thank the TOTEM Employment Agency, which is raising funds in support of research efforts and to improve the care provided to cancer patients at the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR).

In 2016, Nicole Giguère, the founder of the NGPP Employment Agency, now known as TOTEM, died of lung cancer. To honour her memory, her associates Marie Nolwenn Trillot and Jérémy Muller decided to offer their support to the future HMR Integrated Cancer Centre.

They are motivated by a very specific goal: Raising as much money possible for the cause! In order to reach this goal, they are donating $100 for every permanent staff placement they make until the end of 2016.

Marie’s and Jérémy’s gesture will make a real difference in patients’ lives. Thanks to both of you for your great generosity! Thank you for inspiring us!

Impact Néphro_Dévoilement
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Montreal, March 16, 2016 – On Saturday, March 12th, the Montreal Impact and the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR) Foundation teamed up during the team’s home opener for the 9th edition of the Impact Néphro fundraising event. A collaboration that has a real impact: $440,000 were raised to support research efforts and treatment of kidney diseases at the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont.   “We wish to thank the Montreal Impact and our loyal partners, as well as the 300 or so guests who attended the game, for making this event such a success. We have raised over $3M since the first edition of the Impact Néphro event. Together, we enable HMR Nephrology Department doctors and researchers to pursue their admirable work and ensure the well-being of hundreds of patients suffering from Kidney disease,” stated Lucie Drapeau, Executive Director, HMR Foundation.  


  Doctors Mobilized for the Cause Doctors Vincent Pichette, Gabriel Chan, and Louis-Philippe Laurin, volunteer members of the Organizing Committee, have demonstrated the essential character of this fundraiser to support improved patient care. These Nephrology professionals who work at the HMR - a hospital that houses the largest single-site dialysis centre in Quebec - stand out from the rest for their extensive research activities to develop treatments for renal failure and related diseases, including diabetes and hypertension. They were also among the first to offer peritoneal dialysis and home hemodialysis.   “Support from the HMR Foundation has enabled us to launch research projects focusing on the prevention and treatment of kidney diseases, to acquire ultra-specialized equipment for renal replacement therapy in intensive care, to recruit young researchers, to award grants to master’s, doctoral and postgraduate students, and to maintain funding for fundamental research projects,” underlined Dr. Vincent Pichette, Nephrologist at the HMR Research Centre.   We already plan to come back next year. In the meantime, you can view some photos of the event and support Nephrology research efforts at Your support has a real impact![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
