About Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation:

Founded in 1995, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation (ORCF) is dedicated to increasing cancer survivorship in Eastern Ontario. ORCF supports both cancer care and research with the aim to prevent, detect, diagnose and cure cancer.

In partnership with local cancer organizations and hospitals, ORCF has recognized 4 strategic priorities to enhance the lives of cancer patients and their families: shorter wait times, access to care close to home, access to the latest therapies and research, and overall improved quality of life. In F2014, ORCF funded $1.7m Oncolytic Virus research, which aims to train viruses to seek and destroy cancers, but leaving the normal cells unharmed. Phase 1 Clinical Trials for this technology have begun. ORCF also spent $1.4m on the Cancer Coaching program which provides health and social care service to cancer patients. To improve access to cancer care, ORCF invested over $360k in cancer program expansions at smaller local hospitals in Eastern Ontario. ORCF also granted $140k to various clinical trials. Lastly, to improve quality of life for cancer patients, ORCF ran a number of pilot programs such as sport, vitality and rehabilitation initiatives.
