For the past four years, our goals have been to educate people about multiple myeloma
and to raise funds for the Myeloma Canada Chair at the Université de Montréal at
Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (MRH).
We unite with all the participants and donors to stop this cancer one day. Even more, we want to pay tribute to patients who fight it, to researchers who try to unmask it and those who contribute to the well-being of those affected.
Co-founders: Francine Ducas, Maryse Bouchard and Chair Research Director Dr. Richard LeBlanc
Presented by HMR Fundation

Itinerary in details
By making a contribution, you are allowing our researchers and our scientific teams to excel even further and develop the next generation of promising treatments and medications. You will also help improve patient care.
With the generosity of our donors, we will finally be able to create a unique cell bank that will enable us to identify and characterize myeloma genetic predispositions. An absolute first in Quebec and Canada!
Until recently, the usual survival of people with multiple myeloma was 3 to 4 years. In recent years, it has grown to more than six years. Thanks to the donations of people as caring as you, we will be able to improve the chances of survival of those affected.
Many thanks to all our generous partners, sponsors and donors. Your involvement and your moral and financial support are greatly appreciated and we are very grateful. We want to tell you how much your contribution, small or large, is important in achieving our goals while encouraging us to persevere in the path of healing.
Lucie Drapeau, Maryse Bouchard, Francine Ducas and René Fréchette
