For Professional Advisors
Donors fuel the innovation that save lives. And, in many cases, it starts with a conversation with an advisor.
From the patient receiving a diagnosis, to the researcher on the cusp of the next breakthrough, cancer is a disease that propels us to action. We are extremely grateful for the generous support of our donors and the advisors who help them realize those wishes.
You help fund critical advancements in cancer research and care at BC Cancer, that are saving the lives of British Columbians. Please let us know if you would like to receive additional information.
Legacy Gifts: The Empowerment of Planning
We are at a critical turning point in cancer care and research. Demand for cancer services in B.C. is expected to rise by 60% over the next decade.

Our researchers need to know their studies will continue to be funded for as long as it takes to develop tomorrow’s cures.

- Legacy Giving
