The QEII Foundation’s Cancer Never Waits II campaign is funding a new, world-leading Cancer Therapy Preparation Lab which will be dedicated to the preparation of all drugs for the treatment and support of cancer patients at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. Replacing the current and outdated QEII cancer pharmacy, this innovative and expanded preparation lab will be equipped with cutting-edge technologies that are paramount to delivering the best cancer care in North America.

Funded entirely by donors, the QEII’s new Cancer Therapy Preparation Lab will have an immediate impact on cancer care by enabling additional clinical trials, doubling preparation capacity, and shortening hospital wait times for patients. Your generosity will allow the QEII’s cancer care team to deliver life-saving doses faster and ensure patients spend less time awaiting treatment and more time conquering their disease.

Junior Achievement Nova Scotia has a mission to inspire and prepare youth to succeed in the global economy. For every $1 invested in JA programs, $45 is created in economic prosperity. JA provides hands-on experiential learning in the classroom and through extra-curricular activities. Programs focus on three educational pillars: financial literacy, workplace readiness and entrepreneurship. Achievers are three times more likely to plan for their future, twice as likely to study and work in business and 50% more likely to open their own business.

Your generosity is supporting the launch of a new program called World of Choices which brings students together with career mentors working in desired fields, industries and professions. Through small, interactive sessions, students learn first hand what it takes to be successful; charting educational and career pathways.
