Alberta Cancer Foundation
Alberta Cancer Foundation is providing financial support for patients that are undergoing the diagnosis, treatment and/or symptom management of cancer at either Grande Prairie Cancer Centre or the Peace River Community Cancer Centre. In addition to their health needs, these people are facing financial and emotional impact that is compounded by the isolation of facing a cancer diagnosis amidst a national and global pandemic along with the additional restrictions this brings (ie. no visitors). The need for food, accommodation, transport, prescription support, essential doctor and allied health professional visits, counseling, financial guidance, and treatment all continue, despite the increased challenges to access these services.
The $67,500 Emergency Community Support Grant to Alberta Cancer Foundation will ensure that individuals receive access and support for these items through the COVID-19 pandemic.
