2018 Inspiration Gala

THANK YOU!

The 14th annual Inspiration Gala presented by Encana raised an incredible $4.3 million to change the outcome for people with blood cancers in British Columbia.

Thanks to a sold-out room of more than 500 guests, funds raised will enable BC Cancer experts to identify and develop more effective targeted drugs and immune-based treatments that will improve the standard of care for all British Columbians.

BC CAN make a difference in the lives of all cancer patients. Thank you for your support in helping us break down cancer.

Over the past fourteen years, the BC Cancer Foundation's Inspiration Gala has invested over $31 million to accelerate research in lung, pancreatic, breast, ovarian, brain, colorectal, lymphoid cancers, personalized medicine and POG at BC Cancer. The Gala has enabled ground-breaking discoveries in each of these projects, enriching our understanding of cancer, informing new treatment protocols, and helping to save lives.
