Thank You for Joining Our Cause: The Cellular Therapy Revolution

The Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont Foundation and members of the Organizing Committee thank you very much for your engagement in the 23rd edition of the Golf Tournament. Your participation and your generosity greatly contributed to the cause. Thanks to you, we raised $172,999 to accelerate the development of revolutionary cellular therapy treatments at the HMR. These “living drugs” offer endless possibilities and hope to so many patients suffering from cancer and other critical illnesses.

The Foundation wishes to underline the significant and invaluable contribution of the fundraising event’s Organizing Committee co-chairs, Marc Verreault and Pierre Paquet, as well as that of the members who supported them. Your commitment makes all the difference for the Foundation and for HMR patients.

Thank you all for being sources of healing. We look forward to seeing you again next year!

Help us revolutionize cancer treatments!

By current estimates, by 2025, 60% of patients with advanced cancer will be able to be cured using immunotherapy, an innovative, non-toxic and highly effective treatment that will not only control cancer symptoms, but also cure the disease itself!

HMR’s researchers are recognized worldwide for their expertise in immunotherapy and cellular therapy, two approaches that harness the power of the patient’s immune system and cells to develop customized care and treatments for each individual patient. Their innovative research could very well revolutionize cancer care.

Our researchers need special facilities and highly specialized equipment so that their invaluable discoveries can be turned into accessible treatments for more patients. Help us grow our ability to develop the many therapeutic applications of this medicine of the future!

 

A word from the Co chair of the organizing committee

Join us and contribute to the best of tomorrow’s medicine today!»
