Since 2000, Cash & Cars Lottery proceeds have supported Alberta’s two largest cancer-fighting organizations: the Alberta Cancer Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society, Alberta/NWT Division. To date, ticket buyers have helped raise $18 million, opening doors to the discovery of preventative measures, life-saving treatments and medical advances that translate into better support services and treatments across Alberta.
This year alone, 45,000 Albertans will undergo cancer treatment. You may know some of these brave individuals personally, they could be co-workers, friends, a parent or child. The good news is the survival rate is the highest it’s ever been at 62 percent. But when someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, a 62 percent chance of surviving is still far from comforting.
