MONCTON, September 21, 2016 – The Tree of Hope Campaign is pleased to announce that singer-songwriter and actor Denis Richard will be joining actor and wrestler Robert Maillet as Co-chair of the Campaign.

“We are honoured to have Denis join the campaign,” says Claude Paré, Vice-president of the Provincial Tree of Hope Cabinet. “Over the past few years, Denis has fought cancer himself and despite his illness, he has never hesitated to help the Campaign, either by sharing his experience or by playing at the Tree of Hope Radiothon. His energy is contagious, and we are thrilled to have him on the Campaign team!”

Moncton, Monday, November 2, 2015 – Ici Acadie and the CHU Dumont Foundation invite you to take part in Radio-Canada’s Tree of Hope Radiothon on Friday, November 27, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., airing live on Ici Radio-Canada Première from CCNB-Dieppe. Among those taking the stage this year, we note the presence of Zachary Richard who will perform a brand new song!  

The Radiothon’s program was unveiled this evening as part of the traditional lighting of the Tree of Hope, just across from the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre. Musical performances, testimonials of hope and inspiring interviews are in store again this year. Hosts Samuel Chiasson and Amélie Gosselin will coordinate this important 10-hour program along with several of their colleagues, including campaign co-chairs Luc LeBlanc and Robert Maillet, of course. Together, they will try to reach the goal of raising $1.7 million.

“Radio-Canada’s Tree of Hope Radiothon is the opportunity to emphasize the hope we collectively have in our hearts. This coming November 27, we will recognize the strength and courage of these thousands of survivors and the lives of loved ones who have sadly lost their battle to this disease. More importantly, we will recognize the determination and generosity of an entire population who believes in the power of hope during the healing process,” says Robert Maillet.

MONCTON, NB – Wednesday, September 23, 2015 – Under the theme The Power of Hope, the Tree of Hope Campaign was officially launched this morning by actors Luc LeBlanc and Robert Maillet, Campaign Co-Chairs.

For the occasion, two launches took place simultaneously at École Polyvalente W.A. Losier in Tracadie and École Donat-Robichaud in Cap-Pelé.

The overall goal is to raise $1.7 million.

Moncton, July 15, 2015 - Mr. Robert Maillet, professional wrestler and actor, will join Luc LeBlanc as Co-Chair of the Tree of Hope campaign, announced Claude Paré, Provincial Vice-Chair for the campaign.

“I’ve always wanted to associate myself with a cause, says Mr. Maillet. It’s important to give back to our community. Last year, I had the opportunity to witness first hand the benefits of the Tree of Hope campaign when one of my relatives stayed at the Mgr Henri Cormier Lodge. I quickly realized that the campaign has an immediate, direct, real and positive impact on the lives of people affected by cancer in New Brunswick. I gladly accept to take on the role of Co-chair of the campaign alongside my friend Luc LeBlanc. This campaign makes a difference and I want to be a part of it.”
