About the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation

The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is passionate about Conquering Cancer in Our Lifetime. In January 2017, we successfully achieved our Billion Dollar Challenge, a historic five-year campaign securing more than $1 billion, in partnership with Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, for personalized cancer medicine. With the funds and the generosity of our community of supporters, we are now in the early days of delivering on our promise of Personalized Cancer Medicine.
