The We Cross Cancer campaign would not be possible without the support and dedication of our cabinet members. They are passionate Edmontonians who are champions of bringing more made-in-Alberta solutions to cancer and research that will have an impact on patient care. Through their advocacy and guidance, we’re closer to reaching our $30 million fundraising goal in support of the Cross Cancer Institute.
