Donors help ensure cancer patients receive therapy sooner
QEII receives complete funding for a new cancer therapy preparation lab.

Donors like you are advancing care for Atlantic Canadians facing a cancer diagnosis.

QEII Foundation donors came together to address an immediate need in cancer care at the QEII.

As equipment, facilities and technology age, and the demand for cancer care rises, access to a new cancer therapy preparation lab is vital. Community support is helping to address this need for patient care.

With support from the Nova Scotia government, construction for the new lab is underway at the QEII’s Dickson building. Our generous donors funded the cutting-edge technology that will help patients well into the future.

The new, state-of-the-art space will increase capacity for the preparation of cancer therapy drugs, such as chemotherapy. This means patients will receive the care they need sooner.

The lab will also enable more clinical trials to take place at the QEII, connecting patients and their families to the latest cancer research.

Access to a clinical trial can save a life. Clinical trials provide opportunities to participate in groundbreaking research and to access innovative treatments that have yet to be integrated into standard care.
