About the Alberta Cancer Foundation
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 Calgary Cancer Centre (alongside the University of Calgary), 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 supporters like you who give to innovation in cancer detection, treatment and care, across the province.
Creating More Moments
Today, Scott enjoys spending time with his two sons, Cole and Brett, and his wife, Terri-Lynn. He is also an active volunteer at the Cross Cancer Institute, where he regularly connects with other cancer patients and shares his story.
Thanks to the support of an exceptional health care team and Alberta Cancer Foundation donors who support innovative treatment and cancer research at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Jessica was able to receive the treatment she needed.
Earlier this year, Jessica and her grade 2 student, Ella (a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was just two and a half years old) raised funds for the organizations that have helped them on their cancer journeys. Along with her grade 2 class they created a special fundraiser that helped raise over $8000 for the Alberta Cancer Foundation and Kids Cancer Care.
