This year, the funds raised during the Cyclotour Santé Outaouais will support all cancer projects at the CISSS de l’Outaouais. To learn more about these innovative projects and their major impacts in the fight against cancer, visit this page on our website.
Over the past few years, the Cyclotour Santé Outaouais has supported several projects within the CISSS de l'Outaouais. The previous six editions have raised close more than $ 1 000,000, wich ere then reinvested in improving healthcare in our community.
The amount of $ 200,000 raised in the 2020 edition of the Cyclotour will be put for the acquisition of a brachytherapy (internal radiotherapy) machine for ultrasound-based prostate cancer treatments, which can cut treatment duration by more than half !
In the last two editions, more than $250,000 were raised to fund the cacerology clinical research axis of the CISSS de l'Outaouais in order to advance cancer research and test new and innovative treatments. Thanks to these investments, patients at the CISSS's cancer centre have had access to internationally acclaimed research protocols that have led to major advances in the treatment of various cancers.
