Heath’s Story: How art is helping his family heal after their painful loss (Full video)
 
04:08
Donate now: https://albertacancer.ca/donate/healing-arts#PC62485_351=YouTube We have the opportunity to support families across Alberta through their cancer journey. By giving them access to expressive art therapy, children and adults are better able to cope with their diagnoses, heal from treatment, and build resilience for the future. We have committed $300,000 to a Healing Arts program and need your support. This program within CancerControl Alberta relies solely on Alberta Cancer Foundation donor support to help as many patients and families as possible. Art therapists can be there throughout the journey—from diagnosis to end of life and after. Give today: https://albertacancer.ca/investment-priorities/healing-arts#yt Heath McCoy strongly believes in the healing power of art. In 2015, he had to do the unthinkable: tell his seven-year-old-daughter, Bronwyn, and four-year-old son, Finn, their mother had died. Tamara Gignac had been diagnosed with terminal colorectal cancer a year earlier and the family made one last trip to Mexico so she could fulfill her wish of feeling the sand under her feet and watch her children play in the waves. She deteriorated quickly on that trip and ended up being flown back to Calgary via air ambulance. Heath and his children were at Tamara’s bedside in her final moments to say goodbye, which he describes as the most traumatic part of their cancer experience. “I remember telling my daughter that this is the time we have to say goodbye to mommy and I remember she screamed and she kicked,” says Heath. “She had a physical reaction and I held her as tightly as I could and tried to take away her pain. I could feel her agony, I could feel her writhing in my arms. And I remember my son, he couldn’t grasp it as well, but he was crying and crying because he felt like he had done something wrong, to hurt his mom. It was really traumatic.” Thankfully, there are ways to help children and families through this physically and mentally traumatic time. Krista Marsden, provincial co-ordinator of Healing Arts says art therapists often hear from children who think they are to blame for a parent “going away.” “A cancer diagnosis and even more, the loss of a parent, can impact someone’s lifelong trajectory,” says Marsden. “The love story the dying parent and child share can be beautiful—art therapy can help children see everything that parent is doing or has done to live those extra days to hold them and to have those extra moments together. “It helps them not to see the blame but to see the love in that and set them up in their life to be resilient and healthy.” Heath and his children are rebuilding a new life together as a family of three and along the way, he has seen the benefi ts of art in his own children. It became a refuge from the intense emotions associated with their loss. He would watch them do something simple like draw, colour or write a poem that had nothing to do with their mother but before long, that peaceful, meditative time to refl ect would help feelings emerge. “I always tell them their mother is in their heart and it was remarkable to see how art would calm them down, bring them a little peace and help them feel closer to her. What better way for them to feel mommy in their hearts than when they’re in that artistic space, maybe writing a poem or painting a picture of her?” The demand for creative art therapy visits is steadily increasing. Last year, the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and the Cross Cancer Institute saw almost 3,000 creative arts therapy visits, ranging from individual/family sessions to group-based workshops. Therapists also spend time in palliative care units in the cancer centres, facilitating activities that improve quality of life for cancer patients. During this time, patients and family members can create meaningful legacy art projects as well as share in creative activities in the time they have together. There are often waiting lists to see a therapist. The volume of group programs has also been limited. We are in urgent need of $300,000 so we don’t have to turn away patients or families. Together, we have the power to change lives. Be part of this $300,000 investment that will make life better for Albertans facing cancer by donating today: https://albertacancer.ca/investment-priorities/healing-arts#yt Your support will help improve the quality of life of patients which can have a positive impact on health outcomes. Your support can help families heal and build resilience. Thank you for making life better for Albertans facing cancer.

In June 2014, Calgary Herald reporter Tamara Gignac had stomach issues and went to the doctor. A week later, she was facing a terminal cancer diagnosis, given six to 12 months to live. With two young children and a loving husband, Tamara is making the most of every moment. At the Alberta Cancer Foundation, we believe that in order to create more moments for Albertans, we need to make investments that matter—investments that will detect cancer earlier, improve quality of life and provide better treatment options. We know we can make that happen. Let’s give Albertans more moments. Invest today. Learn more: https://albertacancer.ca/more-moments/donate

We’ve had a lot of experience with a lot of different medical practitioners The Cross Cancer Institute, they go above and beyond They are so kind and so gentle And I was like, “You don’t have good news” And she said, “No. We found three more tumours.” We sat all three kids down at the table So at that point Naomi was seven, And Daniel was five and Phoebe was three And we all sat down at the table and we said, “So, Naomi’s medicine isn’t working.” And Naomi looked me straight in the eye and she said, “Mommy, am I going to die?” And I said, “Yes.” And it was a week and a half before her eighth birthday And she said, “Am I going to die before my birthday?” I went, “Absolutely not!” “And we are going to have such a great party,” “and we’re going to have all your friends,” “and we’re just going to celebrate.” Naomi was diagnosed with cancer almost eight years ago And the strides that they have taken, And the things that they know about her cancer and other cancers, Even in those short eight years, is phenomenal, And that’s because of research, That’s because of people who continue to support charities That try and find out why these things are happening.

Changing The Course of Childhood Cancer
 
05:39
Approximately 197 Alberta children will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Approximately 20 of those children will not make it. And survival often comes at a price. Despite advances in research, 75 per cent of children who survive cancer live with permanent side effects, which may include but are not limited to, deafness, blindness, growth issues, motor impairments, cognitive difficulties, heart, kidney and fertility issues, psychological, neurological and endocrine disorders. The Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta is a charitable organization that helps families fighting childhood cancer in Alberta. Our programs are uniquely designed to meet the needs of the whole family at each stage of the cancer journey, from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. Learn more about how we are changing the course of childhood cancer here: http://www.kidscancercare.ab.ca. Thank you to Sam, Jack, Lydia and Julia's families for sharing each of their childhood cancer journeys. And thank you to Sean Stephenson, Brad Warren and Graeme Judd for producing this video at no cost to the foundation.

Alberta Cancer Foundation is more than a charity.
 
04:36
The Alberta Cancer Foundation is more than a charity. It's a movement for cancer-free lives today, tomorrow and forever. It's a movement of those who know a cancer-free movement is possible and who won't settle for "some day." It's a movement of those who stand with Albertans who have no choice but to stand up to cancer. It's a movement of those who know something can be done and are willing to do it. For those facing cancer today, in honour of those lost to cancer, and for generations to come, we promise progress.

International Clinical Trials Day: Anita's Story
 
02:43
It was spring when Anita Julseth went to her doctor to have a mole on her neck checked. _____ It had always been there but recently it had changed… _____ The mole was quickly removed, biopsied and by March Anita knew. _____ She had cancer. _____ Melanoma. Stage IV. _____ Anita underwent surgery to remove the cancerous cells, but by July lumps began to appear on her body. _____ The cancer had spread. _____ Anita’s care team immediately got her placed on an Alberta clinical trial, a type of study that tests the safety and effectiveness of new drugs or procedures. As a patient, Anita volunteered to participate in one such study which was examining the effect of two immunotherapy drugs on late-stage melanoma. _____ For four months, Anita and her husband travelled back and forth from Wetaskiwin to Edmonton for her treatment at the Cross Cancer Institute. _____ When autumn arrived, Anita happily noticed that the lumps were beginning to disappear. By December a CT scan revealed she was free and clear of cancer. _____ “Going back and talking to the research nurse and Dr. Smylie, they brought me the hope.” Anita said. “They’re the ones that said, ‘Yeah, it’s going to be okay. We can do this.’ And they did. They did it! It’s amazing…” _____ When asked what she would say to the donors who made her clinical trial possible, Anita said: _____ “Wow. Thank you. It’s just very amazing to have these clinical trials. Without them, there really is no hope. Like from what Dr. Smylie says, 10 years ago there was no hope. But now… there’s lots of hope. And it’s wonderful.” _____ For many, many years, advanced melanoma was considered untreatable. But now, up to 60% of patients are responding to the latest treatments. _____ Thanks to donors like you who fund these studies and the bright minds at Alberta Cancer Clinical Trials who work tirelessly to find answers, there is hope. _____ THANK YOU! _____ So, today, on International Clinical Trials Day, let us celebrate our progress and look forward to a bright and hopeful tomorrow. _____ Donate to clinical trials in Alberta today: https://albertacancer.ca/clinical-trials-day
