About the Alberta Cancer Foundation

Creating more moments for Albertans facing cancer by inspiring our community to give to innovation in detection, treatment and care.

Albertans helping Albertans is at the core of everything the Alberta Cancer Foundation does. As the official fundraising partner for every Alberta Health Services cancer centre in Alberta, 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 mountains in Canmore to the canola fields in Lloydminster, we make life better for Albertans facing cancer by supporting world-class research and patient care, close to home.

The Alberta Cancer Foundation encourages you to engage with our online communities through open discussions on our various social media platforms. We try to closely monitor all of our social media channels to ensure that posted content is appropriate. However, we are not always able to respond quickly. Therefore, it is acknowledged that all posts made to our social media platforms express the views and opinions of the individual author and not the Alberta Cancer Foundation and its employees, donors, board of trustees, volunteers, sponsors, contractors, partners or cancer centre patients.

Information posted on any of our social media platforms should not be considered medical advice, nor replace consultation with a qualified health care professional. Information posted on our social media platforms is considered public. For your own privacy and that of your family, please exercise caution when posting any personal medical information on any of the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s social media sites and never disclose personal identifiable information, such as your location, health record number or financial information.

The Alberta Cancer Foundation is not permitted to publicly provide any information about cancer patients in Alberta. From time to time, an individual and/or their family may permit a cancer story to be shared publicly that reveals some medical or personal information about the patient’s cancer journey. In this case, formalized authorization documents are completed before releasing any of this information to the public in order to protect the patient’s privacy.
