EV’s Epic Birthday Bash @ Block Party

Every year we celebrate our beautiful girl, Evelyn. Evelyn left us too soon after a
challenging flight with Neuroblastoma. Evelyn was a warrior when it came to her
treatment, facing the worst days with her signature bravery and smile.
Her battle was not lost, but fought hard with grace, light, and dignity.
She is carried in our hearts forever as we continue her legacy through the Team Evelyn
Foundation and our annual Birthday Bash Dance Party to celebrate Ev and raise

Cameron Daye Memorial Golf Invitational @ Turner Valley Golf Club

Cameron Daye Memorial Golf Invitational @ Turner Valley Golf Club

To make life better for sarcoma patients, more research is needed. My family and I have been working with the Alberta Cancer Foundation to raise funds specifically for full-time resources for sarcoma research. Together, we will create more moments for sarcoma patients across the province.

Every year, 150 Albertans are diagnosed with sarcoma, with children and young adults disproportionately accounting 15 per cent of cases.

In the summer of 2019, Rangeland Engineering partnered with the Alberta Cancer Foundation on the creation of the Cameron Daye and Catherine Pearson Sarcoma Fellowship Fund. Valued at approximately $2.7 million, the fund will be put toward groundbreaking sarcoma research initiatives. Funds will be spent on projects in Alberta — one of the first is immunotherapy treatment research, conducted by Dr. Michael Monument at the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine — across Canada and abroad.

As sarcoma is rare, it is the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s goal to ensure that every sarcoma patient is recruited into this prospective research through iSARP, and outcomes measurement program. Clinical research capacity will be structured around the following priorities: an electronic web-based sarcoma database; prospective and retrospective patient data collection; database integration with clinical care portals; standardized outcome measurements; dedicated site-based clinical research personnel; and participation in sarcoma research.

The mission is to establish a first-in-kind, integrated, collaborative program of dedicated sarcoma research in Calgary focused on: a network of sarcoma knowledge generation; new therapeutic discoveries; patient-focused outcomes; personalized therapies and; leadership in prospective clinical trials. The goal is to become a centre of excellence for sarcoma research and patient care in both pediatric and adult sarcomas here in Alberta.

Our overall vision is to improve personalized therapeutic opportunities, survival, and patient-oriented outcomes for Alberta sarcoma patients.

A gift to the Alberta Cancer Foundation in support of sarcoma research helps position you as a leader in our province. Whether you make a personal gift, become a corporate sponsor, or attend the Cameron Daye Memorial Golf Invitational — your incredibly meaningful gift would translate into opportunities to see improved care and better outcomes for our loved ones, friends and neighbours.

Running 4 A Cure – Ultra Marathon
Aug 20 @ 8:00 am – 8:00 pm

Hearing those word “I have cancer” is devastating. It was a cool July day in 2021 when Reid Johnson sat with his parents and was delivered the news that his father has esophageal cancer.

Reid Johnson is participating in the Black Spur Ultra Marathon to raise funds for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. This 54Km trail race includes three trips over the mountain, with a total elevation of 2230 vertical meters. We hope you can help support an organization that does so much for our fellow Albertans.
