SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
France Desharnais, of Montreal, is a member of the Quebec Order of Chartered Accountants and a business development executive with Ernst & Young. Her involvement with the Canadian Cancer Society began in 2007 as a member of the Quebec Division’s performance assurance committee. Since then, France served as treasurer of the division’s board and is now its chair-elect.
“I am passionate about fighting cancer after losing my dad to mesothelioma. As a volunteer, I will do whatever I can to help fight all forms of cancers. The Canadian Cancer Society is my cancer charity of choice and I am pleased to serve on its national board.”
Within about 12 hours of being at Camp Goodtime, everything started to change, and that week was cathartic, transformative. It was the first time I got to know myself.
A helping hand for families
The Canadian Cancer Society helps with expenses for children in cancer treatment and their families.
