La traversée solidaire du Québec - Maé's dream in support of the Charles-Bruneau Foundation

We are Aline and Steve, expatriates in Quebec. Nature lovers, curious and passionate, we like to get off the beaten track and live according to very specific values by bringing something positive to the world around us.

Where does our strength of life come from? 
From our son, Maé, 12 years old, who has just celebrated 5 years of complete remission from cancer. This means he is cured of B-type lymphoblastic leukemia diagnosed in 2016. He was treated in France for more than two years and since our arrival in 2019, the post-treatment follow-up is taking place at the CHUL in Quebec City, at the Charles-Bruneau Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Unit.

We have always wanted to get involved to bring comfort and hope to all these children who are enduring this same struggle. Since his illness, Maé told us that he wanted to travel the world when he was older. So we had the idea to combine these two objectives: travel and bring something to this cause that is close to our hearts. 

We will therefore undertake a crossing of Quebec in the summer of 2023, to bring a message of hope. Maé's message: "There is life after illness". 

The trip will be at our own expense, but we are asking for your support to ensure that Maé's dream will also contribute to giving all children with cancer the best chance of recovery.

Our goal is : 
To fund research against pediatric cancers,
To support the development of projects dedicated to pediatric hemato-oncology, 
To make the numerous hospitalizations of children more comfortable thanks to a favorable environment,
To allow them to carry out activities outside of treatment to brighten their daily lives.

For us, today, every child should have the right to grow up without cancer! 

We must therefore show all these children deprived of these beautiful carefree years by the disease that everything is possible and that we must keep hope. Thanks to your collaboration, you contribute to this extraordinary adventure: thousands of kilometers across the country in favor of the fight of a lifetime. Thank you to all of you!

30 years and still a long way to go...

The situation:
Currently, more than 2,000 children in Quebec have cancer and nearly 300 new cases are diagnosed each year. 1 child out of 400 will be affected by cancer before the age of 15! And unfortunately, 400 to 500 children continue to lose their battle with the disease every year.

Our goal is clear:
Cure the 20% of children whose cancer is treatment-resistant and eliminate the risk of complications for those who are in remission.

How do we do this?
By funding the development of cutting-edge research in pediatric hematology-oncology as a priority.

The Charles-Bruneau Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Unit at the CHU de Québec

The care offered in pediatric oncology at the CHU de Québec-Université Laval in one year translates into eloquent figures, which attest to the relevance of this Unit for the Quebec City region and the East of the province:

3,889 visits are recorded at the pediatric chemotherapy center;
More than 2,100 chemotherapy treatments are administered in ambulatory mode.
More than 800 children are followed for cancer.
