Guy Lafleur Fund - Fondation du CHUM
guy LaFleur Fund


Guy Lafleur, one of the greatest hockey players in history, made a lasting impact on the hockey world and on the lives of everyone he met. One year after his passing, the Guy Lafleur Fund, bequeathed to us by Guy himself, is continuing his heartfelt mission to support all Quebecers who are affected by cancer.

In 2021, after Guy Lafleur was treated for cancer at the CHUM, he chose to join forces with the CHUM Foundation. The fund in Guy’s name was born from number 10’s deep, sincere desire to rally our community and bring hope to people who, like him, have had or will have a brush with cancer. In 2022, his son Martin became the ambassador of the Guy Lafleur Fund, driven by his sense of compassion and love for family.

“Cancer had a devastating impact on my family, just like many other families across Quebec. No one else should have to lose someone they love. In honour of my dad, join me and help us reach his goal of five million dollars.”

All donations to the Guy Lafleur Fund go directly to cancer research at the CHUM Research Centre, a cause that was near and dear to The Flower. Under Dr. Réjean Lapointe’s leadership, the Centre’s researchers, epidemiologists and clinicians have pooled their efforts to establish a personalized oncology care program. They have already made promising breakthroughs for patients and their families.
