BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer.
Together, with our donors, we are changing the outcome for people affected by cancer in British Columbia and beyond by connecting personalized care, innovative research and opportunities to give and give back. Every dollar we raise stays right here at BC Cancer to advance research, enhance care and break down cancer to benefit the people of BC.
PET/CT delivers precise imaging technology that provides doctors with the information necessary to offer the most appropriate diagnosis and treatment. The use of PET/CT means a single, highly-effective test for the patient, which can save them from unnecessary radiation treatment, surgery, additional imaging tests and biopsies.
With increasing demand, the need for PET/CT technology in the Southern Interior has never been clearer. In 2014, there were 857 PET/CT scans performed for patients in this region. This represents close to a 200% increase in the number of scans performed compared to just five years previous.
The BC Cancer Foundation has launched a $5 million fundraising initiative and is committed to bringing this critical care tool closer to home for thousands of patients. No longer will residents of the Okanagan be burdened by having to travel to Vancouver for this important aspect of their cancer care. Learn more here.
We know that generous donor support is fuelling BC Cancer’s clinicians and scientists so that BC CAN break down cancer and save lives. We are actively working with our donors and local communities to inspire investment in BC Cancer world-leading researchers, oncologists and care providers.
