Purposeful remembrance – intentionally making time to re-live favourite memories of a loved one lost – can be very meaningful.
In light of COVID-19, the Alberta Cancer Foundation is not able to host a celebration of life in person. However, those lost to cancer and the families that have chosen to remember them by supporting cancer research and care are ever-more important. You are important to us.
With that, we have created a place for purposeful remembrance in the comfort of your own home. We invite you to scroll down to take part. You can read comforting words from Heather RoukemaGritter, Spiritual Care and Counselling at the Cross Cancer Institute and listen to 12-year-old Elizabeth Thomas play Hallelujah while thinking of your loved one. We invite you to share your story with us, too.
