YOU ARE HELPING PATIENTS LIKE DELORES

In December 2014, Delores Zuk’s family urged her to go to the hospital, as she was unable to climb a fl ight of stairs without being completely out of breath. X-rays showed spots on both lungs, and at the doctor’s request, she stayed for an additional CT scan. By January 2015, Delores Zuk was diagnosed with stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer. Delores met her oncologist, Dr. Randeep Sangha at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, who suggested that Delores was eligible to participate in a clinical trial, which he estimated would extend her life another four to five years.

Thanks to the life-saving clinical trials Delores has been a part of, she has vacationed with her husband in Hawaii, visited her daughter in-law’s home province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and each and every day gets to see her grandchildren grow.

“I AM SO GRATEFUL TO THE DONORS OF ALBERTA
CANCER FOUNDATION, BECAUSE WITHOUT THEM, THESE TRIALS WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE”.

– Delores Zuk, grateful patient.

Julie Rohr

For Julie, a voicemail changed everything.

Stage four cancer.

Sadly, she is not alone. One in two Albertans will hear the words, “you have cancer” in their lifetime and One in four will not survive.

We need to do more. With your help we can.
