The Alberta Cancer Foundation (ACF) strives to make Alberta the leader in cancer prevention and care. The ACF brings together donors, patients, health care providers, and researchers together to invest in a cancer free future. Investments are aimed towards initiatives and programs that will lead to research and programs that have a clear impact for patients, earlier cancer detection, and improved treatments and an enhanced quality of life.
