Did you know that one in six women in Alberta are diagnosed with breast cancer? In January 2021, Jennifer Dell was one of these women.

When Jennifer heard the words “you have breast cancer” her world was instantly changed. And due to COVID-19 restrictions, the young mom of three had to hear this awful news alone. She was in shock and just wanted to go be with her husband and children who were waiting in the car.

Jennifer underwent six rounds of chemotherapy over 18 weeks, followed by a double mastectomy. She is currently undergoing radiation therapy at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.

“I owe a big thank you to all the health care workers at Tom Baker. Truly they are special people and I have been blessed with incredible care,” says Jennifer.

You can read more of Jennifer’s story here.

Your gift today will support world-class research, leading-edge clinical trials and enhanced care programs at the 17 Cancer Centres across Alberta. You will be improving quality of life and providing better treatment options for Albertans, like Jennifer, who are facing cancer.

“As a patient, I can see firsthand the impact of research. Many advances have been made with cancer treatment in the last 5 years, and thanks to that, I have more options.”
