Every gift counts

Your donation helps move Albertans closer to a cancer-free future. Through groundbreaking research, evidence-based prevention campaigns and support for patients and families, the money you give has a big impact.

Here are a few of the ways your donations are helping:

  • 10,000 patients and family members attended Alberta Cancer Foundation–funded patient orientations at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre
  • 548 patients and families received financial assistance
  • 1,062 patients and families participated in the Arts and Medicine program at the Cross Cancer Institute
  • 11 endowed research chairs established in whole or in part by the Alberta Cancer Foundation
  • 37 new Alberta cancer research projects were funded by the Alberta Cancer Foundation last year
  • 25,000 women are expected to have mammography screening next year on mobile digital mammography units funded by the Alberta Cancer Foundation through its Weekend to End Breast Cancer
  • 50,000 healthy Albertans will help us learn more about cancer by volunteering to participate in the Tomorrow Project research study funded by the Alberta Cancer Foundation
