In Canada, 1 in 8 women will face breast cancer during their lifetimes. As a survivor, I stand in solidarity with them today. You can also contribute to create a significant impact. TOGETHER, LET'S BREAK THE CHAINS OF BREAST CANCER.

The beginning

My name is Mylany David. I’m 47 years old and I’m a devoted mother of two teenagers, a passionate lawyer... and a breast cancer survivor. As the Christmas holidays approached in December 2018, this diagnosis turned my family’s world upside down. Refusing to entertain the worst, I chose to believe and to live! With the support of exceptional caregivers such as Dr. Dubé, Dr. Sideris, Irma and Nicole, nurses at Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont (HMR), I began the fight of a lifetime.

My day-to-day life was already hectic before the diagnosis—juggling my role as a mother and a demanding profession—but that was nothing compared to the exhausting pace that followed: treatments, appointments, and countless hardships... for 18 months. However, surrounded by my loved ones and the finest specialists, I could see brighter days ahead! It was through these difficulties, the isolation caused by the intensity of the care, that my perspective on the illness changed.

Once the cancer was in remission, I wondered how I could help other patients.


I found an answer with the HMR Foundation and the "Cancer partners space" a supportive network that sees to the wellbeing of patients. Today, I’m fortunate to be able to give back to this cause. But one reality remains: HMR needs your support to better equip its medical staff and improve the assistance being provided to an increasing number of patients.





Big or small, every donation supports our valuable community and contributes to:

  • Providing an innovative approach focused on quality of life.

  • Supporting all women in vulnerable situations.

  • Providing a healthy future for all generations to come.

I am sharing this challenging episode of my life with you, in the hope that it might inspire you to give.

Thank you for your solidarity.
