We ignite cancer research.

We take a bold approach to providing Albertans with access to the best cancer treatment and care.

My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer when she was 50 and she lived with it until she was 81. When people are faced with a diagnosis, they inevitably have a lot of questions.

We are a partner in Alberta's health system.

You’ve got a talent pool of medical staff at the Cross Cancer Institute who work very hard,” says Charlie. “There are a lot of good things being done there using conventional sources of health care funding, which covers current standard treatments. Private donations help the Institute to go beyond the basics to explore the newest treatments and participate in world-wide clinical trials.
