Simply put, Valérie loved to learn. She was an avid believer that the world can become a better place through the sharing of ideas. With a passion math, science and the arts, Valérie was studying to become a civil engineer at the University of Ottawa. Through her Foundation, we strive to collaborate with educational institutions, support students who embody Valérie's character and to bring awareness to the importance of cancer research.
