Our Proud Sponsors




Two important research projects will be financed by your generosity!

The proceeds will be fully reinvested to advance genetic research and ensure access to genetic testing for breast cancer screening through a research program led by Dr. William Foulkes. Similarly, part of the money will go to Dr. Mark Basik's research on personalization and the most advanced treatments for breast cancer. Thousands of women with breast cancer can improve their chances of survival.

The JGHF & QBCF have partnered up together in the fight against breast cancer. This event will help fund research and initiatives at the Jewish General Hospital which will benefit breast cancer patients from Montreal, Quebec and beyond.
