Your Dollars at Work

OneWalk. One Day. All Cancers…



The Princess Margaret’s Billion Dollar Challenge


The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation will mark its half-way point in its BILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE on October 15th, 2014. The Challenge is a 5-year initiative to secure $1 BILLION to create the new gold standard in cancer care: PERSONALIZED CANCER MEDICINE.

This new approach to cancer care involves finding the right treatment, for the right patient, at the right time. Our focus is to detect cancer earlier, diagnose with more precision, target treatment for each individual and support patients and their families through their cancer journey.

The Billion Dollar Challenge supports this ambitious goal. The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation’s challenge is to raise $500 million through philanthropy over this period while our researchers are challenged to secure $500 million in research grants. We are tracking ahead of plan but every donation, every walker and every program counts as we seek to accomplish this goal.

We are enormously grateful to all those who support our vision of Personalized Cancer Medicine. To create and deliver this new model of cancer care, leaders at The Princess Margaret are recruiting scientists, clinicians and other experts to further strengthen our position in important areas such as epigenetics, clinical genomics, bio banking, computational biology, immune therapy and pathology.

The Billion Dollar Challenge will help ensure that the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre remains one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world and leads the way in new therapies to save more lives for patients at The Princess Margaret, across Canada and around the world.
