$130,000 for the Défi Cyclo-Myélome

Maryse Bouchard and Francine Ducas, with doctors Jean-Sébastien Claveau, Richard LeBlanc and Jean Roy during the Défi Cyclo-myélome

For the 11th edition of the Défi Cyclo-myélome, which was held on May 27, 2023, 175 cyclists took to the roads of Brome-Missisquoi in support of multiple myeloma patients. Together, they raised over $130,000 for multiple myeloma research. And it’s not over!


Congratulations to challenge organizers Maryse Bouchard and Francine Ducas for this great success.

Proceeds from the event help fund the Université de Montréal Myeloma Canada Chair in Multiple Myeloma at the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, held by Dr. Richard LeBlanc.

Finding a cure for this incurable cancer

To this day, multiple myeloma remains an incurable disease. However, treatments are enabling patients to live better and longer, thanks to research.

Dr. LeBlanc’s team strives daily to improve patient conditions and develop future treatments and cures. This is made possible by generous donors like you, who have been following the Défi Cyclo-myélome for over a decade!
