Since 1934, the Jewish General Hospital (JGH) has been providing cutting-edge treatment and compassionate care to patients from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds in Montreal, throughout Quebec and beyond.
The money you raise for The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer will help fund cancer research and care at the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital and throughout Quebec. Funds will also be used to support new technologies in the areas of molecular diagnostics, functional imaging, biomarkers, molecular target discovery and validation, and advanced targeted radiation therapy. There are few cancer centres in the world where a strong combination of researchers and highly skilled and motivated clinicians exist under one roof. The Jewish General Hospital is such a centre and that’s why we need your support. Riders have the option of designating funds to a specific area of cancer research.
The Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital, an international leader in the fight against cancer and a McGill University teaching hospital, is committed to research, prevention and treatment of cancer through an integrated approach, with a wide array of interrelated services grouped in close proximity to one another. This approach is considered by leading experts to be one of the most effective and promising strategies in battling cancer.
