On Friday, April 28, 2023, donate with a loved one in mind!
You certainly know someone within your family or friends who’s fighting cancer now or who’s fought it in the past. Someone certainly comes to mind.
That’s why the Roses Radiothon is getting teams in action in the Chaleur region and on the Acadian Peninsula to raise funds for the 17th annual Roses Radiothon taking place on April 28.
The Roses Radiothon is a wonderful opportunity to honour the courage of people who’re fighting cancer now or who’ve fought it in the past and to improve the health care available at home first.
We worked tirelessly in our communities all year long to organize fundraising activities designed to meet the growing equipment needs here. The new equipment to be acquired will save valuable time and improve the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer.
The Roses Radiothon is the crowning event of our 2023 campaign. We’re working with three radio stations and countless volunteers to encourage you to take concrete action and recognize the importance of having access to quality care close to home.
On Friday, April 28, give to one of our four hospitals in the region and help us reach the $190,000 objective of the 2023 Roses Radiothon.
However much you give, your donation will make a difference in people’s lives. Thanks to the donations we will receive, people will be able to obtain quality health care here in the region, close to home and close to their family!
Alice Hébert of the Chaleur Regional Hospital Foundation, Joseph Lanteigne and Annie-Julie Gauvin of the Fondation Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus, Renée Noël of the Fondation de l’Hôpital de Lamèque, and Eric Robichaud of the Fondation Les Amis de l’Hôpital de Tracadie are the chairs of the Roses Radiothon. They speak as one to ensure this event is a success.
On April 28, support the Roses Radiothon and donate with a loved one in mind!

Here’s the equipment that we will be acquiring if we achieve the 2023 event’s $190,000 objective:
Chaleur Regional Hospital Foundation: We hope to purchase a Vantage endobronchial ultrasound (“EBUS”) system for ambulatory care. This system will be used to diagnose various types of pulmonary disorders – including inflammation, infections and cancer.
High performance Maldi Biotyper Sirius system for laboratory tests: Access to state-of-the-art mecial equipment and diagnostic tools is essential to provide proper care that are meetingtoday’s standards to patients in our region. Accessibility to this care is a priority for both practitioners and patients awaiting critical outcomes. It is through this equipment that valuable time is saved.

The new automated unit at the Laboratory will be available to support our staff and produce very fast response times. This speed will improve patient care when managing infections and treating cancer.
This equipment will benefit the entire Northwest, reduce expensive travel and minimize wait times for results.
Fondation Hôpital de l’Enfant-Jésus: The donations will go toward acquiring equipment for electrocardiography (ECG) services, pediatric development, emergency, speech-language pathology, laboratory, oncology, patient and visitor comfort, medical imaging and specialized services at the Chaleur Regional Hospital.
