Since 1934, the Jewish General Hospital (JGH) has been providing cutting-edge treatment and compassionate care to patients from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds in Montreal, throughout Quebec and beyond.
The money you raise for The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer will help fund cancer research and care at the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital and throughout Quebec. Funds will also be used to support new technologies in the areas of molecular diagnostics, functional imaging, biomarkers, molecular target discovery and validation, and advanced targeted radiation therapy. There are few cancer centres in the world where a strong combination of researchers and highly skilled and motivated clinicians exist under one roof. The Jewish General Hospital is such a centre and that’s why we need your support. Riders have the option of designating funds to a specific area of cancer research.
The Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital, an international leader in the fight against cancer and a McGill University teaching hospital, is committed to research, prevention and treatment of cancer through an integrated approach, with a wide array of interrelated services grouped in close proximity to one another. This approach is considered by leading experts to be one of the most effective and promising strategies in battling cancer.
The Fondation du Centre hospitalier régional de Trois-Rivières (CHRTR) was formed after the merger of Sainte-Marie Hospital Centre Foundation and Saint Joseph Hospital Centre Foundation in 1997. CHRTR’s mission is to raise funds and other goods to help create, maintain and develop health care and services in the Mauricie community and throughout central Quebec.
CHRTR’s Foundation stands among the top 10 most influential Hospital Centre Foundations in Quebec by helping the acquisition of high-tech machines and equipment, which will help optimize the care and services offered to its patients.
CHRTR holds a regional mandate in cancer research. The proceeds from The Ride to Conquer Cancer® will exclusively fund the enhancements of treatments in this sector. The optimization of care allows our patients to benefit from more accurate diagnosis and to receive more specialized treatments within the community, eliminating the need to commute to larger centres and benefit from the support of their friends and family.
