Just One Week Before Radio-Canada’s Tree of Hope Radiothon

Martine BlanchardCheryl LeBlancGeorge BelliveauJanic Godin
There’s only one week left before Radio-Canada/CBC’s Tree of Hope Radiothon, the high point of this annual fundraising campaign.
Since it started in 1989, the Tree of Hope Campaign has raised over $24 million. Donations have been invested directly in improved care for New Brunswick cancer patients. 

With seven days to go before the main event, we want to share the seven main reasons for supporting the 29th Tree of Hope Campaign.Jonna Brewer

7. Donations will be used to purchase a Fletcher applicator. It is primarily used in the treatment of cervical cancer
6. Donations will continue to support cancer research efforts.
5. Donations will allow for dynamic and adaptive radiation therapy. Thanks to this technology, our teams can better target the volumes to be treated, and they can reduce the dose administered to healthy tissues.
4. Donations will be used to support projects to improve the Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge. It provides lodging to close to 2,000 patients each year, free-of-charge.
3. Donations will allow us to attract a new dermatologist and to perform Mohs surgery. This is an innovative technique that will improve the treatment of certain types of skin cancer.
2. Donations will continue to support the satellite units located in Edmundston, Campbellton, Bathurst and Caraquet.
1. Donations from the public will be reinvested here in New Brunswick to support cancer patients. This underscores the courage of relatives and friends who are battling or have battled cancer.

"We all know people who show or have shown courage in the battle against cancer," says Tree of Hope Campaign Co-Chair Denis Larocque. "We are extremely fortunate to be able to count on the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre, the Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge and the satellite units in Northern New Brunswick. I want to thank all those who contribute to the campaign, by donating money or their time as volunteers. »

"I know what it's like to fight cancer. I experienced the ordeal myself when I was 16 years old," says Joannie Benoit, Co-Chair of the 29th campaign. "So, I am well positioned to say that public support really makes a big difference for patients and their family members. It is truly heart-warming to know that we are not alone in this battle, especially when we see the tangible results of the campaign, right here in New Brunswick. I am very thankful to donors and volunteers. »

CBC Radio One’s Tree of Hope Radiothon will air on November 24th, from 6 am to 9 am, live from the Radio-Canada/CBC studios in Moncton. The show will feature musicians Ryan Hillier and Alex Madsen, along with a special performance by Joannie Benoit.

Radio-Canada's Tree of Hope Radiothon will take place on Friday, November 24th, live from the CCNB in Dieppe, from 9 am to 7 pm. Again this year, many artists will donate their time to support the event. They include: George Belliveau, Kit Goguen, Michel Thériault, Emilie Landry, Troiselle, Sandra Lecouteur, Laurie LeBlanc, Izabelle Ouellet, Mario Lebreton, Jesse Mea, Christine Melanson, Joannie Benoit, Phil Athanase, Cy, Alexandre Dionne and Marc Lamontagne.
