Largest donation in AHS history

Throughout Cancer Care Alberta, today is a day to celebrate. Today, marks a major milestone and a moment in history that will never be forgotten.

While in Calgary, teams are continually working hard to prepare the new cancer centre to welcome patients in 2024, the largest donation in Alberta Health Services’ history ­– $50 million ­– was presented to the Calgary Cancer Centre, thanks to the Arthur J.E. Child Foundation.

This is a level of gift that seems insurmountable but will help propel cancer care, education, and research forward. The donation will support the success of the new centre through precision oncology and clinical excellence; attracting and retaining the best and brightest professionals; and capitalizing on emerging opportunities to bring new treatments and research initiatives to Albertans sooner.

In recognition of this historic gift, the Calgary Cancer Centre will now officially be called the Arthur J.E. Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre, or The Arthur Child.
