The Radiothon des Roses is a fundraising activity well known by the entire population of the Chaleur region and the Acadian Peninsula to support the purchase of equipment or devices related to cancer. The radiothon began in 2007 in the Chaleur region to help improve health care in the region. In 2008, the radiothon was expanded for the Acadian Peninsula by adding its three foundations. The radiothon logo (4 roses) represents the four foundations. The funds are raised from activities that are organized locally throughout the year and thus through the day of the radiothon. 80% of the funds raised in the region are used to improve certain services at the Enfant-Jésus RHSJ Hospital and 20% are given to the Chaleur Regional Hospital to purchase equipment for the fight against cancer . Since 2008, the Radiothon des Roses, in collaboration with the Fondation Enfant-Jésus Hospital, has raised $ 250,618 for the needs at our local hospital, in addition to donating $ 62,652 for the purchase of equipment. our regional hospital.
To make a donation, please contact us at 726-2166 or you can donate online.
The next Radiothon des Roses will take place on April 26, 2019. For more information, please contact the Enfant-Jésus Hospital Foundation at 726-2166.
Thank you to our partners!
In September 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had to travel to Bathurst to take my chemotherapy treatments, but after each treatment, I could go back home, with my husband and continue my routine. The fact that I was receiving my treatments near my home and returning home allowed me to continue my part time work as a waitress, as well as continue my dance classes. For me, it was very important to continue my activities and to surround myself with positive people.
My cancer being aggressive, I received my treatments very quickly. But even in this fast pace, the staff of the Oncology Clinic and the doctors took the time to explain to me, step by step, the treatments and follow-ups that I was going to receive.
I encourage you to participate in the Radiothon des Roses. We never know when the disease will hit and who it will hit; it can be you or someone close to you. Your donation will allow our regional hospital to continue to purchase equipment for the fight against cancer and make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
