The Yamaska Valley Optimist Club and the Brome Missisquoi Perkins Hospital Foundation are pleased to announce that the 19th edition of the Walk to fight Women’s cancers which took place from October 4 to November 4, 2020 raised $75,000 for its virtual version. Despite the pandemic and the absence of the physical event, the Yamaska Valley Optimist Club and the community have stepped forward to support women’s cancer treatment at the BMP Hospital. By adding the amount raised through the 18 previous cancer walks, the Yamaska Valley Optimist Club is proud to have reached the significant sum of $1,055,594. All of this money is directly invested in the purchase of equipment to prevent and treat women’s cancers. The BMP Hospital wishes to acquire this state-of-the-art equipment in order to improve the quality of care, as well as the safety and comfort of patients during surgery.
A very special thank you to the two Honorary Co-Chairs of the march Ms. Louise Penny, novelist and Dr. Christine Cadrin, gynecologist at the BMP Hospital.
