My Active Health Services
My Mobile App
Unique and innovative, the My Active Health mobile app is designed to encourage people with cancer to remain active during and after oncology treatments. The application features specialized monitoring adapted to the individual user’s condition, so that they can move at their own pace with exercises that will improve their physical condition. The application also includes a feature for monitoring and optimizing medication intake.
The My Active Health mobile application was created and developed in close collaboration with MedHelper, a technology company established in Quebec working in the health sector.
This mobile application was also made possible thanks to the collaboration of Hexfit, our technology partner. Hexfit software creates a centralized file shared between your various health and physical activity professionals, thus allowing you to optimize and achieve your objectives.
Download this brand-new app to your smartphone or tablet via Google Play and App store.

Dragon Boat Teams
The sport of dragon boating is gaining popularity among people who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The Foundation supports five teams across Quebec. In addition to fostering a strong team spirit, dragon boating brings many benefits for people who have been affected by breast cancer. These include greater shoulder mobility, improved upper-limb strength and better lymphedema control. In addition to regular team training, paddlers can also compete at the local, regional, provincial and even international levels!
