Alberta Cancer Foundation

Cancer doesn’t care if patients can’t make ends meet.

But we do.

Help provide financial assistance for Albertans facing cancer.

“The money we got from the Patient Financial Assistance Program meant that we could eat. It made all the difference.” – Michael Kosterman, Cancer Survivor

Donate to our Patient Financial Assistance Program to support patients in your community who are trying to make ends meet.

All donations will be matched.

About the Alberta Cancer Foundation

Albertans helping Albertans is at the core of everything the Alberta Cancer Foundation does. Our very purpose comes from our desire to create more moments for all Albertans facing cancer, no matter where they live or the type of cancer they are facing. From the Canmore mountains to the canola fields in Lloydminster – we support leading edge treatment, care and research that is making a difference for cancer patients across the province.

As the fundraising partner for the 17 Alberta Health Services cancer centres, as well as the new Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre, we make life better for Albertans facing cancer by supporting world-class research and patient care, right here in our own backyard. But, we can’t do it alone. It takes a village. One that includes the generosity of donors who support innovation in cancer detection, treatment and care, across the province. Such gifts support patients whose cancer journey has put them in a financial bind, and others who have ran out of all other treatment options and are turning to a clinical trial as a last resort, a last hope. The list goes on and on. The impact is immeasurable.

In the very simplest form, the Alberta Cancer Foundation is about Albertans helping Albertans. It’s about ensuring we can provide the very best care, close to home so that every cancer patient can focus on what matters most: healing. But, we need your support. Help us achieve our vision of a cancer-free future today. And, for a limited time, all donations will be matched by an anonymous donor up to $200,000.
