United for a cancer-free future partnership
Uniprix has been committed to people’s health and well-being for 45 years. As we strive to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients, we are partnering with the Institut du cancer de Montréal to give researchers the means to beat cancer.
You, too, can join the fight against cancer!
Did you know?
Cancer is the leading cause of death in Quebec1 and the second leading cause worldwide2.
As such, nearly 2 in 5 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime3. This means that millions of children, adults and seniors, regardless of their social status, will have their lives disrupted by the disease.
This resonates with good friends France Beaudoin, media host and producer, and France Castel, media host and actress, who are joining their voices to ours by becoming the spokepersons in support of cancer research.
Research at the Institute
The researchers who are members of the Institute focus on cancers of epithelial origin, which include most solid tumors, such as ovarian cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer.
The family pharmacist's role
In addition to answering your questions about the disease and ensuring that your treatments are effective, your pharmacist will provide support and accompany you in your health journey.
How are donations used?
Financial contributions are distributed to member researchers of the Institute to:
- Support research projects
- Invest in state-of-the-art equipment
