At the end of the 14th fundraiser organized for the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation, the Medicart/Epiderma network is proud to announce that it has raised the sum of $15,880.
Throughout the month of October, for each laser hair removal, cellulite, body contouring, microdermabrasion and peeling package sold, Epiderma donated $20 to the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation. Concerned to contribute to the well-being and overall health of women, Epiderma once again led a fundraising campaign as part of breast cancer awareness month.

The partnership between Epiderma and the Foundation is natural and we want to thank our customers for having enthusiastically participated in this campaign,” explained Julie Bédard, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Medicart network.
“On a daily basis, the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation witnesses the reality and needs of people affected by breast cancer and their loved ones. Our mission is to improve their quality of life by offering them the best support services, free of charge, throughout Quebec. Thanks to the donations collected by the Medicart / Epiderma network, the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation can ensure the sustainability of its services, improve them and develop new ones,” said Karine-Iseult Ippersiel, President and CEO of the QBCF.
