La Fondation des Gouverneurs de l’Espoir is a major partner of Hôpital Sainte-Justine Foundation. Established in 2002, the foundation’s mission is to make a difference in the lives of children afflicted with cancer.
In 2010, Francine Laplante, President of the Foundation, promised the integration of 6 palliative care rooms at Hôpital Sainte-Justine. A year later, 3 rooms have been completed at a cost of $300,000.
These rooms, all equipped with high technology equipments, help give the children the best care possible and provide them and their families with a comfortable and well decorated environment. They provide the families with a secure, serene and intimate environment, allowing them to give their children tenderness and comfort to accompany them during their last days. The concept has been a great success and the 3 rooms have been greatly appreciated by the children, their families as well as the medical personnel.
It is with great pride that Le Groupe Multi Luminaire and its members have taken on a great challenge by financing the fifth palliative care room at Hôpital Sainte- Justine at an approximative cost of $100,000.
The room will be finished in the summer of 2012.
