The Institut du cancer de Montréal and the network of Uniprix-affiliated pharmacies have joined forces to support cancer research. This collaboration is being deployed through an awareness campaign on the importance of research and the role of the pharmacist in supporting patients’ treatment.
United for a cancer-free future Campaign allows Uniprix customers to make donations at the checkout or online until June 30, 2022. During this period, Uniprix is committed to doubling the value of donations received, up to a maximum of $50,000.
France Beaudoin and France Castel, who are both aware of the cause, have agreed to be the two faces of the United for a cancer-free future Campaign.
“I am very happy to join this campaign and all those who, in their field of expertise, are advancing cancer research. Let’s give as many tools as possible to those who can improve treatments, statistics, prognoses, let’s multiply the resources to generate health and hope”, underlines France Beaudoin.
France Castel, for her part, says “I am happy to be associated with this campaign which brings hope to the disease. Through donations to the Institut du cancer de Montréal, we have the opportunity to give a boost to research and ultimately improve the quality of life of people affected by cancer.
