Dollars At Work


The Cross Cancer Institute is northern Alberta’s own comprehensive cancer centre and a leader in innovative cancer research, prevention, treatment and care initiatives across the province and beyond. As one of 17 cancer centres directly supported by the Alberta Cancer Foundation, the Cross Cancer Institute has been a vital part of redefining the future of cancer in Alberta since its inception in September 1968. 

For many Albertans and their families facing cancer, the Cross Cancer Institute will forever hold a special place in their hearts for the compassionate care they received during their cancer journey. With the support of generous Albertans like you, the Cross Cancer Institute has not only been able to deliver specialized care to those facing cancer, but continually push the pace of discovery with cutting-edge technologies and research that will make a difference for the 43 Albertans who will hear the words “you have cancer” every day.

Thanks to generous donors like you, two state-of-the-art PET/CT scanners at the Cross Cancer Institute are making waves in cancer screening and treatment for Albertans. These next generation scanners, capable of providing high-resolution images, are valuable early detection tools in spotting much smaller tumours than currently possible which is vital in impacting the course of cancer. Compared to conventional scanners, the new PET/CT technology can screen three times as many patients. With the addition of these cutting-edge PET/CT scanners in Edmonton’s PET Centre, 50 clinical trials are now possible, having a transformational impact on future cancer treatments and advancements.

The continued support of organizers, donors, volunteers, and sponsors of events like Admiraal Racing for a Cure is helping the Alberta Cancer Foundation to continue pushing for accelerated change, progress and above all results at the Cross Cancer Institute.
