Ali lost her brother Grant to leukemia after a short, but intense battle. Those seven months changed Ali and the direction of her life forever.
Now a graduate student in cancer research, Ali was troubled to learn that only five per cent of all cancer research funding in Canada goes to kids. “My brother deserved more than that. He deserved more than five per cent.”
You can give kids with cancer a fighting chance. Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by Calgary philanthropist Gary Nissen and PBA Land Development up to $40,000 if you donate by December 3rd.
Please give today.
* Please note, the matching donation for your gift will not be reflected on the thermometer. It will be added once the Giving Tuesday campaign is complete.
The Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta is planning to raise an estimated $4.3M this year, which will cost the organization an estimated $1.1M to raise. All monies raised will be used for board-approved programs and projects that benefit the families we serve.
