About

Our vision

Day in and day out, the Foundation’s team members are driven by a shared vision: a future in which no one dies of breast cancer.

Our mission

The Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation is the only non-profit charitable organization dedicated to making investments for the benefit of the province’s breast cancer patients and its scientific and medical community, with every dollar its many fundraisers and activities raise.

Karine-Iseult Ippersiel
President and CEO

For over 25 years, we have been committed to defending the interests and well-being of people affected by breast cancer and their loved ones. Our contribution is especially noteworthy in the area of medical and scientific advances. We invest in innovation and cutting-edge research and in patient-support programs, ranging from prevention to cure.

Every day, the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation works to save lives and improve the quality of life of people living with breast cancer by:

  • Funding research and innovation,
  • Defending patient rights and offering support,
  • Generating cutting-edge knowledge and a sense of community,
  • Leading prevention and education, activities and raising awareness.

Our values

Compassion for those with breast cancer and their loved ones inspires the dedication of everyone involved with the Foundation. We always give priority to the interests of the people we defend, support and represent. We believe in a future in which breast cancer no longer takes lives, and so we are fully invested in fighting this disease.

Integrity is one of the Foundation’s core values, and we never take our special relationship with our donors, partners and volunteers for granted. Integrity is at the heart of everything we do and it guides our every decision. We respect our commitments, and each and every one of our members acts consistently, responsibly and transparently.

A force that combines creativity, self-confidence, knowledge and courage, innovation allows us to think outside the box and go that extra mile, to lead the way and to inspire. Thanks to our team’s many talents, we suggest and innovate, both in our fundraising projects and in our investments in research and support to benefit those affected.

Our expertise and vision allow us to invest our energies and resources in projects that have a measurable and lasting impact, not only to optimize every dollar raised, but also to ensure that our actions make a real difference for people with breast cancer, now and in the future. Our impact can be measured by the changes we bring about.

Those of us at the Foundation are in love with life! This passion shines through the projects we support, the activities we organize and take part in (even after office hours!) and, of course, our daily work. We give 110% because we truly care about the people we help and those we work with.
