President and CEO
Each year, hundreds of children die from untreatable diseases; it is an unspeakable injustice. These children who cannot defeat their diseases are our daily inspiration.
However, advancements in science and the speed at which technology is evolving feed our hope and allow no more excuses: why delay the development of treatments and cures against diseases that pediatric medicine has not yet found?
We live in a world where imminent discoveries are about to save children's lives, a world where seeing a child suffer is no longer tolerable.
But government subsidies are decreasing and are not enough. To continue to advance and achieve concrete results, research on childhood diseases needs your support.
We are very grateful to all our benefactors and donors who ensure that the Foundation of Stars remains the largest non-governmental source of funding for research into children's diseases.
I sincerely thank our remarkable team for working every day with passion and determination to help improve the lives of sick children.
I would also like to highlight the work of our dedicated volunteers for the many hours they have devoted to our caurse and thank our generous partners for their essential contribution. Whithout them, it would be impossible to continue to work.
Finally, I would like to thank our researchers whithout whom the mission of the Foundation of Stars could not exist, and I warmly thank our Board of Directors for their outstanding contribution to the development of the Foundation.
Pediatric research makes all the difference, it plays an essential role in the lives of sick children and their families, which resonates most with me.
Maripier Morin, spokesperson
For me, there is nothing more important than investing in the future of our children. We must therefore ensure that researchers have all possible support to prevent and cure childhood disease.
