After the Government of Alberta announced that a 1.4 billion dollar comprehensive cancer centre will be built, the Alberta Cancer Foundation started work on a plan to embark on a five year, 200 million dollar campaign to fund programs and equipment, enhance patient care and advance educational and research excellence within the new Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre currently under construction in the city of Calgary.

What if a building could give a hug?

The Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre will be a leading health care facility and centre for research and education in oncology delivering integrated cancer care – a one stop care facility. Not only will the building double the capacity to treat patients and double the space for clinical trials, its design, made up of two curving, L-shaped forms coming together in an embrace, will provide patients, families and staff with a warm, comforting environment that invokes hope and healing.

We seek to invest in the brightest minds and to enhance the learning and educational growth of care givers and clinicians.
