This Giving Tuesday, support the CODE LiFE Campaign
OUR HOSPITAL OFFERS THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF CARE TO PATIENTS WITH LUNG, ESOPHAGEAL AND STOMACH CANCERS
The Montreal General Hospital Centre for Innovative Therapeutics in Chest and Esophago-gastric cancers treats the most complex cases, covering the whole province of Quebec and Eastern Canada. These cancers generally have a poor prognosis, with five-year survival rates of between 15 and 20%. However, there have been remarkable advances in the treatment of lung and esophageal/gastric cancer in the past five to ten years, and surgeons at the Montreal General Hospital have contributed directly to many of them.
With your help, we can go further.
This Giving Tuesday, help us provide vital support for vital care.
