Immunotherapy

Investment Priorities

Immunotherapy

Scientists and clinicians are realizing the solution to better survival rates will be a combination of traditional techniques with novel treatments. One of the most exciting developments in the last few years in the field of cancer is immunotherapy.

Colorectal Cancer Research

Investment Priorities

Colorectal Cancer

In 2017, nearly 2500 Albertans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer. These are not just statistics. These are our loved ones, our neighbours, our friends.

Breast Cancer

Investment Priorities

Breast Cancer

Every day, 6 Albertans are diagnosed with breast cancer. Many will receive Taxane Chemotherapy, an effective drug that can improve cancer survival. But it only works half the time.

Head and Neck Cancer

Investment Priorities

Head and Neck Cancer

Head and neck cancer can be ruthless, with a survival rate of barely 50 per cent. While surviving this type of cancer can clearly be defined as success, it is often just the beginning of a long and painful journey for these patients.

Prostate Cancer Research

Investment Priorities

Prostate Cancer

Dr. Lewis and his team are pushing to accelerate new and innovative ways to align research throughout the province and solidify Alberta as a world-class prostate cancer research centre.

Alberta Cancer Foundation Patient Financial Assistance Program
