In an ongoing effort to contribute to the well-being of women, Quebec-based company Epiderma once again led a fundraising campaign this year during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

As a result, Epiderma was able to raise $16,800 within its network, which it donated today to the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation.

As Marie-Pier Frenette, Marketing Director at Epiderma, says “we are in touch with a quarter of a million people at Epiderma, so we are particularly sensitive to what people affected by breast cancer, either directly or indirectly, go through.”

Nathalie Tremblay, President and CEO of the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation stated that “each donation improves the accessibility to more effective treatments for people in Quebec, thereby helping to improve their chances of surviving the disease. We sincerely thank Epiderma.”

Did you know that…?

This year in Quebec, 6,500 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer, 1% of whom will be men. Among women aged 20 to 49, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths, while women aged 50 to 69 are the most prone to this type of cancer. Since its creation 25 years ago, the Foundation has made a significant contribution towards improving the five-year survival rate, up from 74% to 88%.
