Helping Albertans with Cancer Live Longer, Healthier Lives

Innovative cancer research is happening all over Alberta and it’s helping us better understand cancer — how to reduce the risk of developing the disease, detect it earlier, develop more effective treatments, and improve the quality of life for patients.

Every year, more than 1,000 Albertans participate in cancer-focused research trials — trials with benefits that ultimately help hundreds of thousands of other patients, in our province and around the world. Other research initiatives, such as Alberta’s Tomorrow Project — an expansive and collaborative health research study on the causes and preventative methods of cancer — will see thousands more patients’ lives transformed thanks to research. Cancer research in Alberta has already led to many incredible advancements in our quest to change the course of cancer. These include earlier detection of breast cancer, more personalized and effective treatments through precision oncology, lives extended through CAR-T cell therapy, and countless other novel treatments and discoveries that are significantly improving survival rates of those facing the disease. But our work is not done.

Lifesaving Discoveries Start With Your Generosity

In 2023, the Alberta Cancer Foundation invested over $18 million into cancer research in Alberta. By giving to research funded by the Alberta Cancer Foundation, you’re supporting the brightest minds in medical research and helping move discoveries from the lab directly to patients quicker than ever before. Your support is changing the way we prevent, detect and treat cancer and creating more “made-in-Alberta” solutions to the disease.
