Clinical Tools & Equipment

Funding state-of-the-art equipment to provide high quality, timely diagnosis and treatment.

The Cancer Centre Foundation receives requests from the senior management team of the Cancer Program for current and future funding needs. We invest in the purchase of a variety of tools and equipment that enable the dedicated staff to provide more timely, and effective and efficient care, to make patients more comfortable during their cancer journey.
