TAFF and La Maison des Greffés Lina Cyr announce a strategic partnership

Micheline Cyr Asselin named Honorary President of 5th annual E-Challenge fundraiser

Friday June 22nd, 2012 – The Alexander Family Foundation (TAFF) and La Maison des Greffés Lina Cyr (La Maison des Greffés) are pleased to announce a strategic partnership that will provide direct financial support to lung-transplant patients residing at La Maison des Greffés in Montréal.

“Founded in 1994, La Maison des Greffés is truly an incredible and unique operation, providing housing and care for patients from all over the province of Quebec as they prepare for and recover from organ transplants” stated Charles Alexander, TAFF’s founder and President. “Our mission is to assist patients stricken with Pulmonary Fibrosis - one patient at a time, is exactly aligned with the services that CEO Micheline Asselin and her team provide to their lung patients so well every day”.

Micheline Cyr Asselin, director general of La Maison des Greffés goes on to say, “We are extremely pleased that TAFF has committed to provide our lung transplant patients and their families the much needed support they so very badly need. Funding from TAFF will directly support the room and board and medical expenses incurred by our lung patients – real expenses that our patients do not have the means to pay”

TAFF has also named Micheline Cyr Asselin as its Honorary President for the 5th annual E-Challenge golf fundraiser, scheduled to take place September 20th, 2012. Funds raised from this tournament will be largely dedicated to supporting lung transplant patients residing at La Maison des Greffés.
