Cancer Care Campaign: Key Priorities

With the support of philanthropists like you, our Hospital will transform treatment and care for cancer patients in London and Southwestern Ontario. Our fundraising priorities include:

Renovating the Fight against Cancer – The LRCP facility is becoming extremely overcrowded. Through a large-scale renovation, our specialists will be able to serve cancer patients and their families in a modern and welcoming space. You’ll arrive at LRCP and make your way through an efficient registration area. You’ll await your appointment in a comfortable sub-waiting room, and will have personal discussions with your physician in a private area. And you’ll receive chemotherapy in a spacious environment with your loved one by your side.

Translational Cancer Research –Setting the stage for busy cancer clinicians and their scientist colleagues to connect, exchange ideas and discuss new possibilities allows exciting research to take root for cancer patients and their families. Our Hospital engages in world-leading research to help detect and prevent metastasis, find new ways of treating cancer in a highly personalized way, create new methods to detect and treat the disease through novel imaging techniques, and offer innovative clinical trials of new cancer therapies.
