About Northern Cancer Foundation

The Northeast Cancer Centre at Health Sciences North is a special place – a place you might not realize is special until you’ve been here, or until you have needed its services. The Northern Cancer Foundation aims to make an impact on the cancer care experience through the support of local cancer research and vital equipment purchases at the Northeast Cancer Centre.
