Edmonton, AB – When a family learns that their child has cancer, it can be an extremely stressful and isolating experience. It can also lead to financial strain, particularly for families who live outside of large cities and travel to seek treatment for their child.

The five-bedroom house first opened in September 2018, thanks to generous donations from Qualico and other donors such as the Dave Lede Foundation and the Ken Webb Foundation.
