Big Blue Sky Gala – North @ J.W. Marriott, Ice District, Edmonton
Nov 5 all-day

From north to south, east to west, Albertans have one thing in common – a love for their province, their people and their communities. Known for our friendliness, resilience, generosity and good citizenship, Albertans have a lot to be proud of.

The Alberta Cancer Foundation is thrilled to announce the Big Blue Sky Gala – an event that celebrates all things Albertan, while providing support to our friends, family and neighbors facing cancer in our province. This inaugural event taking place in both Calgary and Edmonton will celebrate Alberta’s land, history, and diverse cultures in everything from music, art, sport and cuisine. From its rich landscapes, golden grain fields and clear blue skies, Alberta is a beautiful place and we can’t wait to showcase all it has to offer and all we can accomplish, together.

Taylor Bell Memorial Fundraiser @ 4th Spot Kitchen and Bar
Oct 12 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

We are getting organized for our 5th Annual Taylor Bell Memorial Fundraiser which is being held October 12th, 2019. It is hard to believe we have hit the 5 year mark! This event has been so successful thanks to the wonderful donations we have received over the last 4 yrs. We have managed to raise over $60,000 so far to benefit Young Adult Cancer Canada and The Tom Baker Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic. To learn more, please visit our website.

We lost our daughter, Taylor Marie Bell to Acute Myeloid Leukemia on December 23, 2013. She was just 20 yrs. old. Taylor was treated at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre here in Calgary. The doctors and nurses were wonderful and they did their best to help us all through this tragic 8 month ordeal. At a time when most young adults are becoming independent, going away to school, choosing career paths, and maybe considering marriage and a family. Young adults affected by cancer are, instead, coming to terms with chemotherapy, radiation, prospects of infertility, and potentially moving back to live with their parents. This, as you can imagine, can be a very isolating experience during an already traumatic time. In Taylor’s memory, we are committed to helping other families who may be facing a similar situation. We see ourselves as advocates for this wonderful yet vulnerable and sometimes misunderstood group of young people between the ages of 18-39 years.

We were also invited to share our story in the Alberta Cancer Foundation magazine “Leap”, a publication about Alberta’s cancer free movement. https://myleapmagazine.ca/2015/09/01/staying-strong-for-taylor/
