About the Foundation

Our foundation was created with the goal of advancing the field of head and neck oncology and reconstruction and that is just the beginning. It exists:

To provide financial assistance, including fellowships, endowments, scholarships and bursaries for the training and education of physicians, physicians-in-training and others wishing to study, research or specialize in the field of head and neck oncology and reconstruction. To provide training and education, and to fund, accommodate, facilitate and offer opportunities for training and education, for physicians, physicians-in-training and other medical practitioners involved or interested in the field of head and neck oncology and reconstruction. To fund, facilitate, and engage in research into the causes, prevention, treatment, relief and alleviation of head and neck cancers and related illnesses. To foster public awareness, through the hosting, preparation, conduct and dissemination of public education programs, professional seminars, and informational materials and publications concerning head and neck cancers, as well as related illnesses and their causes, treatments, and strategies for relief and prevention, and to promote health and wellness generally. To provide funding, financial assistance, gifts and donations to qualified recipients, or other third parties with goals congruent to the Centre’s objectives and activities. To fundraise by way of gift, donation, legacy, bequest, contribution, grant and any other form to help achieve our Centre’s goals.

If our work has helped you or someone you value—or if you simply wish to support our efforts toward these goals—your donation is greatly appreciated.
