À la mi-mars, il a reçu des nouvelles très inquiétantes pour sa santé et va devoir subir de traitements de chimiothérapie pour le traitement d'un cancer du pancréas. 
Il ne peut plus continuer à travailler et n
ous sollicitons votre soutien pour aider cet homme qui a dédié sa vie à aider autrui.
Les fonds amassés vont l'aider à payer son loyer, à manger, à vivre confortablement et en sécurité pour les prochains mois de traitement. 

Claude Chalifoux has lived in St-Henri for 59 years. You've seen him walking along Notre Dame, meditating beside the canal, helping people paint, unloading moving boxes, picking up trash. He's a St-Henri fixture - kind, generous and deeply committed to his community. 
Mid-March Claude was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  2 weeks later he started chemotherapy. He cannot work and has no savings. This man who has spent his life helping others needs your help. We are asking for your donations to help Claude pay his rent, buy his groceries, live his life with comfort and security. Taxis to and from the hospital since walking is too exhausting. 
We thank you for your generosity - every little bit helps. 

Here's the link the the beautiful CBC Doc where you see Claude in action!

Chers amis et collègues,
j'ai le regret de vous informer que Claude est décédé cette nuit à 00:20.
Il est parti doucement, entouré de ses famille, dans sa chambre de l'hôpital Glen.
J'ai eu la chance de le voir samedi matin. Il a mangé son petit déjeuner préféré, le pain doré du New System BBQ, avec des étoiles dans les yeux.
J'ai aussi eu la chance de lui dire bye, et je sais maintenant que la douleur est partie, je suis contente pour lui.
Vos dons seront encore les bienvenus, afin d'aider à couvrir des frais funéraires.
Je vous tiendrai au courant des dispositions qui seront prises pour lui dire au revoir tous ensemble.

Dear friends and colleagues,
Claude slowly passed away last night, a little after midnight in his hospital room at the Glen.
He was surrounded by his family.
I had the chance to see him Saturday morning, he was very peaceful and loving. Here's the last picture I took when I brought him is favorite breakfast.
I'm happy his pain is finally gone.
I will keep you informed about the funeral arrangements later this week .
* your financial help will still be appreciated in order to cover the last expenses.
