As part of the hospital’s fundraising “Voir Grand” campaign, Felix Auger-Aliassime took some time off from his tennis schedule this week to visit both patients and staff members at the Sainte-Justine Hospital in Montreal.

Since June, the Canadian has served as the foundation’s spokesperson for Sainte-Justine Hospital. Auger-Aliassime acknowledged that his birth in the Sainte-Justine Hospital served as motivation for him to accept the post.

The hospital posted some images of Auger-Aliassime’s visit to their cancer center on social media. The former World No. 6 went by to encourage an 8-year-old boy battling with cancer during his visit and gave him a large autographed tennis ball.

Auger-Aliassime shared his thoughts on Instagram and said: “Philanthropy has always been a part of my life. My parents taught me early on the importance of giving back. Having been born at Sainte-Justine, I’m honored to return here today to meet families and hopefully, brighten their day a little.”
