Pink Crow’s Fundraiser @ Virtual - Facebook Live
Nov 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Our event/fundraiser will be a Virtual Yoga Session hosted on Facebook. We were inspired by the idea to do yoga as our fundraiser activity of choice because we want to promote health and wellness as well as cancer awareness to our participants. We feel that Yoga aligns well with the vision that the Alberta Cancer Foundation has and is a fun activity for our participants to be involved with.

Free participant registration. Any donation amount is appreciated.

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/

something2wear Virtual Fall Fashion Show @ something2wear (Virtually)
Oct 25 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

something2wear fall fashion show is going virtual, but in style of course!

We are doing 4 fashion show segments on Instagram Live on Sunday from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
We will be selling Mystery bags for $25 and $50, where 100% of proceeds will come back to the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s Patient Financial Assistance Program.

Cancer can be a huge strain on the finances. People are often forced to cash in their retirement funds and use up their savings to make ends meet during treatment. The costs can be so overwhelming that some patients will decide against having life-saving therapy and instead choose a lesser treatment as they simply cannot afford the out-of-pocket expenses for items such as medications, medical supplies, transportation, accommodations and child care. Thanks to individuals like you, patients and families are able to receive financial support during their treatment so they can focus on what matters most – healing.

Last year, the Patient Financial Assistance Program was accessed more than 4,933 times by over 926 families across Alberta.
