The Roses Radiothon is an initiative to help purchase equipment for the Chaleur Regional Hospital and for hospitals on the Acadian Peninsula. The Radiothon includes a whole range of activities that take place throughout the year. The culmination of the event is the day of the Radiothon where all monies raised during the year are handed over and people can make donation.
Together, we have raised over $1.7 million since 2007: $1,214,168 toward the purchase of equipment enhancing the screening and treatment of certain cancers at the Chaleur Regional Hospital and $640,188 for the the facilities in the Acadian Peninsula.

My son, my hero
Testimonial by Jessica Ward, mother of Jérémie, a brain cancer patient
In July 2014, Jessica Ward came face to face with the unimaginable. Her only son, then not quite three years old, was discovered to have a cancer of the brain and spinal cord called medulloblastoma. This aggressive and dangerous adversary was classified at stage 4. With this discovery, Jessica’s life changed forever. “I couldn’t wrap my head around what was happening. How could a child have brain cancer? I didn’t even know that such a thing existed! The situation was unbearable. My whole body was shaking, I was nauseous and dizzy.”
