Over 600 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer every day. Receiving a diagnosis can be devastating to both the patient and their family, but they don’t have to do it alone. With lack of funding and limited access to experimental treatments preventing many Canadians from overcoming this disease, you can make a difference.
Imagine receiving a potentially life-threatening diagnosis like cancer. The situation becomes even worse if you have to worry about trying to manage the costs associated with cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Although the majority of our health care costs are paid for through the publicly funded system, there are many expenses that are not covered, including illness-related expenses such as medications, wigs, mastectomy bras, breast prostheses, nutritional beverages, transportation and parking, accommodations and child care.
The London Regional Cancer Program Patient Assistance Program helps to fill this gap by offering patients assistance through one of the following funds:
Launched in 2010, the Gerald C. Baines Centre for Translational Cancer Research is home to some of the brightest minds and best technology dedicated to translational cancer research.
Also known as bench-to-bedside research, translational research bridges the gap between science and patient care by identifying current, significant research projects and applying that knowledge to benefit real patients right here in our community and around the world.
The generosity of our donors directly impacts our hospital's ability to acquire new equipment, fund ground-breaking research and, ultimately, save lives.
