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.
One cancer-treatment centre, one research centre, three pediatric hemato-oncology centres in Quebec
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.
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: flow cytometry platform, pediatric cancer biobank platform, gene editing and cell reprogramming platform, chemical molecule screening platform and ELIspot and Luminex platform.
Cancer treatments are invasive and very difficult for children to undergo. The art therapy program is becoming an essential support element.
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:
