Tickets are now on sale for the 2020 Cash & Cars Lottery to benefit the Alberta Cancer Foundation, the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and Cross Cancer Institute.
The Alberta Cancer Foundation directly supports all 17 cancer centres in Alberta, including the Cross Cancer Institute and Tom Baker Cancer Centre. A release from Cash and Cars Lottery notes ticket buyers support programs that have a clear line of sight to cancer patient outcomes including early screening, personal and financial comfort, patient navigation help and cutting-edge, impactful research.
In 2007, Cameron Lane was diagnosed with melanoma. Initial treatment and surgery were successful. Several years later the cancer returned and in 2013 after several more surgeries, the cancer had spread to his lungs.
“I had four tumours in my lungs, and I felt like a ticking time bomb,” he says in the release.
Fortunately, Lane was eligible for a clinical trial at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton. By July 2014, he had a complete response to the clinical trial treatment and the tumours in his lungs had disappeared. Today, the dad of three is healthy.
