Participatory ethic

Who’s better to allocate direct aid funds to young adults with cancer than other young adults who have already been there? Inspired by this thought of being open-minded and inclusive, the Néz pour vivre Foundation gives the chance (and the responsibility that comes with it!) to a group of five young people who had a fight against cancer to prioritize the demands, allocate funds, and create mechanisms to control the support actions. The committee has been operational since January 2016 and a group representative will sit on the board of directors of the Foundation.

Francine Laplante, M.S.M.

President

Francine Laplante embraced the cause of the fight against cancer when her son suffered from this disease at age 5. He has now healed, but she vowed to devote her life to help sick children so that research and medical care allow them to enjoy a more pleasant life despite the difficulties and the fears. She also personally accompanies dozens of children to their end of life.

In ten years, Francine was able to raise more than $ 7 million, which has been invested in health care provided to sick children as well as through various projects to ensure their well-being and that of their bereaved family.

Through this route, Francine has met many battling children and it’s two of them, Nicolas and Louis-Philippe, who inspired the concept of the Néz pour vivre Foundation, which basically follows Francine’s commitments in the fight against children and young adults’ cancer.

Simon Lafortune

General Manager

Passionate about events and the well-being of children and their families, Simon wore several hats including those of holiday camp director (100 watts holiday club), Director of events and relationship marketing (Pharmaprix), Senior Director of conferences and marketing (IATA) and strategic marketing and events consultant (Témoin Production, Institut du Nouveau Monde and others). He also had a seat on the board of directors of the Starlight Children’s Foundation Quebec for more than 10 years. He likes to be surrounded by passionate and creative people who push their limits. He now acts as the Foundation general manager since the launching event in May 2014.

Marie-Philippe Savoie

Tout a commencé au lancement de la fondation, le 4 mai 2014 ! Marie-Philippe participait à l’organisation de l’événement en compagnie de ses collègues d’école dans le cadre d’un projet étudiant. Prise sous les ailes de Simon et Francine, elle a endossé son nouveau rôle d’ambassadrice de la fondation avec brio. Touchée par la cause et par la tranche d’âge (qui est la sienne aussi) à laquelle la fondation touche, elle a poursuivit son implication bénévole pour ensuite être engagée à la fin de ses études. Marie-Philippe est reconnue pour son côté très humain, très organisée , impliquée et par son désir de donner l’espoir et faire changer les choses.

Julie a à coeur le bien-être des jeunes touchés ainsi qu'un intérêt marqué à faire connaître la fondation.
