Spread out over three years ($12,000/year), the donation from the Luc Maurice Foundation will allow Maison Aline-Chrétien to pursue its mission of providing free access to palliative care services for people at the end of their life and their families. “Since late April, more than 55 people and their families have benefited from the care and support of our dedicated team.
