The 2019 edition of the Tree of Hope will be different from all previous campaigns. Nine people have agreed to be co-chairs this year. Nine people who have lent their names, their faces and their energy to this cause over the past 30 years. Nine people who say they are happy to be back at the helm. Every year, the Tree of Hope generates great passion all over the province.

Ready for the challenge! The co-chairs are excited to get involved and help ensure that the campaign is a resounding success. As a very first challenge, they have set a financial goal of $2 million. This is the highest goal ever set for the Tree of Hope, an activity that has touched the lives of thousands of New Brunswickers over the years.

 

"The Tree of Hope celebrates life," said Dr. Nicole LeBlanc, one of the co-chairs. It stems first and foremost from the will to offer cancer patients the very best care. The true success of this fundraising campaign rests on the goodness of men and women who find inspiration by doing something for the good of their fellow citizens.

With cancer rates still on the rise, the need for oncology services is very high. The Tree of Hope Campaign is a collective effort to support as many patients as possible and their loved ones.

"Cancer can strike at any age, no matter your language, where you live or your social status," said Denis Losier. He is a co-chair and a cancer survivor. "This year’s co-chairs are ready for the challenge. Stay tuned in the weeks to come as we issue challenges to among ourselves and invite all New Brunswickers to do the same."
