Lung Cancer

This year, nearly 2000 Albertans are expected to be diagnosed with lung cancer.

Sadly, 1700 will die.

We are impatient for progress. We know there is a need for new and effective treatment options. Together we can make a difference by investing in Lung Cancer.


Where your investment goes.

So far, no Canadian province has a lung cancer screening program, although a national project recently conducted a small research study to learn more about the disease. With your help, Alberta will be the first to implement a sustainable program.

We have committed to $2.5 million over five years to launch a pilot program that can serve as the basis for a larger, provincially-led screening program.

We invite you to help improve outcomes for lung cancer patients in Alberta.
