FONDATION CHARLES-BRUNEAU

Since 1990, the Charles-Bruneau Foundation’s mission is to give all children with cancer the best chances of recovery by financing research and supporting the development of projects in the area of pediatric hematology and oncology.

OBJECTIVES

  • Finding a cure for the 20% of children whose cancer is resistant to treatment and;
  • Improving the quality of life of children in remission so that they can enjoy a true recovery.

STATS

More than $12 million remitted by the 24h since 2003.

One cancer-treatment centre, one research centre, three pediatric hemato-oncology centres in Quebec

  • Montreal, CHU Sainte-Justine
  • Montreal, Montreal Children’s Hospital
  • Sherbrooke, CIUSS de l’Estrie-CHUS
  • Quebec City, CHU de Québec-Université Laval

Over 29 years, the Fondation has invested more than $15 million in research and $40 million on construction, planning, and equipment for the 5 establishments.

SUPPORTED PROJECTS

Research projects

Called the Signature Program, this important program will sequence the human genome of children and adolescents with cancer to determine the molecular characteristics of each tumour, determine its diagnosis, identify the abnormalities involved and treat them with targeted therapies.

Sequencing paves the way for the discovery of biological markers of efficacy -- genetic markers that will provide an indication of the most effective treatment to prescribe and the likely course of the disease, with the objective of improving quality of life after recovery without after-effects or complications.

Research platforms

Research platforms: flow cytometry platform, pediatric cancer biobank platform, gene editing and cell reprogramming platform, chemical molecule screening platform and ELIspot and Luminex platform.

Complementary therapy

Cancer treatments are invasive and very difficult for children to undergo. The art therapy program is becoming an essential support element.

“Since 2003, Fondation Charles-Bruneau has been a proud recipient of donations from Tremblant's 24h and its participants in the fight against pediatric cancer in Quebec. Your generosity has helped give hope to thousands of children who bravely battle cancer. Knowing you are by our side in this important fight touches us greatly. Thank you for your precious support.”
- Pierre Bruneau, spokesperson for the Fondation Charles-Bruneau

Ottawa Senators
Foundation

The Ottawa Senators Foundation believes that investing in programs and initiatives that promote both physical and mental wellness in our kids is a critical priority. The Foundation invests in:

  • Social recreation
  • Education
  • Physical and mental wellness
  • Roger Neilson House, a pediatric residential hospice

OBJECTIVES

To ensure that kids are given the opportunity to be active, engaged and to feel good about themselves.

STATS

More than $3 million donated by Tremblant's 24h since 2006 to improve the lives of children and youth in eastern Ontario and western Quebec.

One in five children in Ottawa and Gatineau lives in poverty and many do not have access to after-school sports, recreational or social programs.

Since opening in 2006, Roger Neilson House has provided more than 20,000 days of care and has had over 3,000 admissions.

SUPPORTED PROJECTS

Give children and youth access to free recreation and activities on SENS RINK throughout Ottawa and Gatineau.

Provide an incredible experience to more than 1,600 children at 25 summer camps, 14 of those in Quebec, as well as at three specialized camps for children with cancer.

Give families of children with life-limiting illnesses a home-away-from-home at Roger Neilson House.

« The spirit, love and genuine caring that emanated from the organizers and participants was truly amazing,” said Emma Gofton, I had never been part of such a positive experience before. »

"I walk for the children and youths who go to school on an empty stomach. For those who watch as their friends head off to day camp, when they themselves can't go. For those who don't fit in at school and are ready to just give it all up. And for those who despair at being trapped in a vicious circle but don't know how to get out. Fondation Tremblant exists for them, and it is because of them that Tremblant's 24h has its real significance. Thank you to all for participating and for giving generously."
