The more we own cancer, the less it owns us

Support the new Calgary Cancer Centre with the OWN.CANCER collection

Snuggling a newborn, belly laughs at the perfect joke, savouring a warm embrace — cancer tries to take it all. And it’s time we take back that power.

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to OWN.CANCER — to bring the world’s best cancer treatment, research and patient supports to our doorstep. It’s an ambitious dream, and it’s already underway. 

At this moment, Canada’s largest, most comprehensive stand-alone cancer care centre is under construction in Calgary. Concrete walls rising to the big prairie sky will shelter 1.3 million square feet of world-leading cancer care, research and education — bringing together the right people with the right tools under one roof.

The University of Calgary, Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Cancer Foundation — three trusted community institutions with a proven track record for moving mountains — have partnered together to make this dream a reality. Our goal: raise $250 million in support of the new Calgary Cancer Centre, to accelerate cancer research and revolutionize cancer care. 

It’s a game-changer. And we can’t do it without you. 

How can you OWN.CANCER? It’s as easy as making a donation — or pulling on a hoodie. Or a toque. Or a t-shirt.

The Calgary Cancer Centre Campaign is proud to partner with Local Laundry on a new line of OWN.CANCER streetwear. With your purchase, you’re not only helping us reach our goal, but you’re also showing your support — your determination to OWN.CANCER.

Embarking on a made-in-Alberta plan to meet the cancer challenge, it only made sense to partner with a home-grown Alberta business, to give you the opportunity to OWN.CANCER with us. Because the more we own cancer, the less it owns us.

Are you ready?
