Dr Benoit Loranger

Event organizer

«Treated at the HMR for acute myeloid leukemia, my son Antoine underwent chemotherapy followed by a bone marrow transplant (allotransplantation) in June 2010, which allowed him a short period of remission. In spite of his steadfast perseverance and unfailing courage, Antoine passed away on July 25, 2012, at the age of 24.

I created the Fonds Antoine Loranger to realize his dream: To beat leukemia and eventually all cancers. Surrounded by my family and Antoine’s friends, every year, I organize skiing (Défi ski Antoine Loranger) and golfing (Leçons pour la leucémie) activities to raise funds. The goal is to honour Antoine’s memory by creating a fund in perpetuity to support HMR leukemia research efforts and research into all other forms of cancer.»

To date, Dr. Loranger and his friends have raised over $500,000 for research in leukemia and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

On behalf of all the patients who will benefit from their efforts, the HMR Foundation wishes to thank them for their commitment and loyal support.
