More Courageous Together
Dedicated to funding cancer research and patient care, and supporting families in challenging medical situations, the Mario Lemieux Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that gives others a chance to win the battles they face.
Since our founding, we’ve been focused on finding a cure for cancer by funding research.

Since its founding, the Mario Lemieux Foundation has been focused on finding a cure for cancer by funding research. Through ongoing projects at the Mario Lemieux Center for Blood Cancers, the Mario Lemieux Lymphoma Center, and the Mario Lemieux Immunotherapy Center, we support research that translates to clinical trials and innovative therapies that save lives.
Through his own battle with cancer, Mario Lemieux learned how fragile life can be. He also came to recognize the resources that patients and their families need to navigate a cancer journey. Consequently, through the Foundation, Mario has forged a life-long commitment to offering hope and support to cancer patients who need it most. The Foundation’s ongoing Patient-care initiatives exemplify how channeling adversity into philanthropy can be a win-win.
What would you do if you had three children: two healthy kids and one in the hospital with a threatening medical condition? That’s the experience the Lemieux family had when their son, Austin, was born premature in 1996. At that time, they had two toddlers and newborn Austin, who would spend 71 days in the NICU. Following their experience, Mario and Nathalie recognized the need to help other families who face challenging situations in medical facilities, and the idea for Austin’s Playrooms was born.
