PROCURE is pleased to announce that Bertrand Godin is becoming one of its official spokespersons and is launching new initiatives to fight prostate cancer through THE RACE OF COURAGE BERTRAND GODIN.
A tribute to his friend Jean Pagé
After supporting the cause for several years, the racing driver Bertrand Godin becomes the official spokesman of PROCURE – The Force Against Prostate Cancer, alongside Isabelle Pagé and Winston McQuade. A cause that is particularly important to him due to his dear friend Jean Pagé, who died on December 9th, following a long battle with prostate cancer. It’s with emotion that Bertrand continues the work Jean has done over the past 15 years.
“Still today, there are 12 men in Quebec who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and this fight, I saw my friend go through it. Today Jean is no longer here, but his fight continues: breaking the taboos surrounding this disease, helping men to get out of isolation and support them and their families in this long battle they are going through. It is with pride and passion that I am following in his footsteps, notably alongside his daughter Isabelle. From up there, I know he is very proud of her.” says Bertrand Godin.
