Tribute to Benoit Desgens

Bannière Benoit EN

It’s with great sadness that the BMP Foundation learned the passing of Benoit Desgens: friend, donor and supporter of our mission. We extend our hearth felt sympathies to his family and friends.

Benoit Desgens always cared about his community. He initiated and organized with Mr. Mathieu Baker the fundraising event La Soirée champêtre, which raised $90,300 since 2012.

In 2016, he touched the participants of La Classique and the Grand Summer Ball with an emotional testimony on his long struggle against cancer.

Unfortunately, Benoit Desgens will not see the takeoff of the BMP Hospital Oncology Clinic’s project this summer for which he has worked so hard.

He will remain forever in our memories as an extraordinary example of determination, commitment, and courage.
