Why we get involved

Susan McPeak, co-founder of the Group, was diagnosed with breast cancer 15 years ago. She had access to advanced treatment as part of her participation in a clinical trial.

This experience gave her the dedication to unify the various research centres in Quebec in their fight against breast cancer.

After supporting her battle against cancer, Susan’s husband, Charles Sirois, a renowned entrepreneur, joined her in the initiative to bring the best possible care to the greatest number of women fighting against breast cancer in Quebec.

Susan McPeak is very active in the fight against breast cancer. She took part in the documentary film Beauty and the Breast, shared her testimony in the book Tu n’es pas seule, and was honorary co-chair of the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation’s 20th anniversary fundraising campaign, to name only a few of her contributions.
