The More We OWN.CANCER the Less it Owns Us
An ambitious dream is coming true. One of the largest comprehensive cancer centres in North America is coming to life in Calgary this very second. Inside this dynamic structure, medical teams and researchers will collaborate on new diagnostic tools and treatment plans, giving patients the best possible outcomes. Down the hall, educators will lead prevention programs to keep others from ever experiencing a cancer journey. And patient-focused spaces for quiet reflection or child art therapy will give the centre an atmosphere filled with healing and hope.
When it opens its doors in 2024, the Arthur J.E. Child Cancer Centre will shelter 1.3 million square feet of world-leading cancer care, research and education, allowing us to transform the landscape of cancer in this province and beyond. It will also help to establish Alberta as an international leader in cancer care, research and innovation.
Together, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, University of Calgary and Alberta Health Services have partnered on the OWN.CANCER campaign to raise $250 million to accelerate cancer research and revolutionize treatment within our new world-class cancer centre.
