Healing Arts Program    

 

Patient Financial Assistance   

 

At the Alberta Cancer Foundation enhancing the lives of patients and their families is the core of everything we do. It’s who we are, and it pushes us to make investments that elevate the standard of care in Alberta.

This Progress Report takes a look at four investments that are not only improving quality of life for patients and their families, but are also making life better for Albertans facing cancer.

A clinical trial that that you helped fund put immunotherapy into the cancer spotlight. The Alberta Cancer Foundation recently celebrated a partnership that will allow researchers to harness the power of the immune system. Breakthroughs like this will help get the most innovative new treatments to patients, faster.

You’ll read about how one couple received financial support from the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s Patient Financial Assistance Program. This is a program that helps to cover costs such as housing, food, childcare and transport when needed most. Thanks to you.

After life-saving surgery for head and neck cancer the physical alterations to a patient’s skull or face can be devastating, but thanks to the legacy of an Edmonton surgeon, new research will help restore their quality of life. And finally, you’ll see how our investment in the provincial Arts in Medicine Program is helping patients in Calgary and Edmonton heal through art. All thanks to you.

All of these investments have played a part in making life better for Alberta cancer patients. Thank you for helping us make investments that matter.

CEO Alberta Cancer Foundation
