Cancer impacts almost everyone in some way…

… and everyone wants to help. But sometimes it is hard to know if your money really makes a difference. At Survive & Thrive, every penny counts. We are a small organization with a large impact, having reached thousands of young adults since 2009 despite a very modest budget. Donate now and help a young adult cancer survivor make the most of their second chance!

Survive & Thrive Cancer Programs is a registered not-for-profit organization with the Province of Alberta (registration #5114856700). After 8 years and hundreds of Young Adult cancer survivors served, we are currently in the process of registering with the Canadian Federal Government so that we can issue tax receipts to donors. We have raised over $300,000 over the past 8 years without the ability to issue tax receipts because the incredible life changing impact of our programs. Thank you so much for continuing to partner with us as we move through the process of becoming a registered charity. We deeply value every donation and are looking forward to honoring donations with a charitable tax receipt in the future.
