QEII Foundation to announce transformational gift for cancer care innovation

HALIFAX, NS, Sept. 20, 2022 /CNW/ - On Thursday, September 22, the QEII Foundation will announce its largest donation ever received to-date – a multimillion-dollar transformational gift that will impact cancer care in Atlantic Canada for generations to come.

One local family's incredible generosity will have a lasting effect on the way that cancer care is delivered at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, from supporting the development of groundbreaking cancer-fighting technologies, to fast-tracking upcoming innovation and discovery opportunities.

The family, with deep healthcare roots, are inspired to honour their late parents' legacy and have their multimillion-dollar gift help improve top-of-mind areas in cancer care – like improving patient outcomes, reducing wait times, attracting and retaining top medical professionals, and delivering the best patient care experience possible. 

Together, with the QEII Foundation, the family is thrilled to help transform cancer care for Atlantic Canadians – through integrated, advanced, and compassionate care at the QEII Health Sciences Centre.
