Fundraising Dollars 
The Cancer Care Foundation Newfoundland & Labrador is a registered charity whose mission is to raise funds for cancer care throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. The Foundation supports four Cancer Centres – the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre in St. John’s, Cancer Centres in Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor, and Corner Brook and affiliated chemotherapy infusion sites throughout the province.
Thanks to the support of our Polka Dot Trot Participants and donors, funding from the Polka Dot Trot enables the Cancer Care Foundation to purchase leading edge cancer treatment equipment and fund supportive patient programs to assist cancer patients along their cancer journey.



Empowering you to take an active role in your cancer care journey - NOONA App for Iphone and Android. 

Dealing with cancer isn’t easy, but the tools available in Noona can empower you to take an active role in your cancer care journey.

Why Noona?

Noona is an online app that enables you to report your symptoms prior to your cancer care appointments. The cancer care team reviews your responses during your visit and uses this information to make recommendations about your care.


The tools available in Noona empower patients to take a more active role in their cancer care journey.

  • Report symptoms by completing the online questionnaires ahead of time.

With Noona, patients can report symptoms and complete their questionnaires online, prior to their visit. Doing the questionnaires at home gives patients more time to reflect on their answers. Reported symptoms are discussed during the patient’s next visit with their cancer care team and are used to make recommendations about patient care.

  • Document and track progress through the wellbeing diary.

The Noona’s patient diary is a tool that helps cancer care patients document their symptoms and keep track of how they are feeling. The diary can remind patients of important information to communicate to their care team during their visits. Members of the cancer care team do not monitor the diary as it is intended for patient use.

  • View cancer care appointment schedule.

Cancer care patients can view some, but not all, of their health-care appointment schedule online through Noona. Patients can call the cancer care centre to request changes in appointments.

  • Receive notifications from the cancer care team.

Cancer care patients can also receive notifications from their cancer care team.  To learn more about how to download Noona - ask a member of your Cancer Care team.

Patient and Family Support Fund 


The financial burden that can accompany a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Cancer patients may be unable to work, they may be retired or living on a fixed income. Expenses such as the cost of gas to travel to treatment appointments can add up – increasing the financial stress even more.

Through the Patient and Family Support Fund, the Cancer Care Foundation is able to offer direct financial support to cancer patients who qualify, to assist with these added expenses, allowing patients to focus on their treatment.

The Patient and Family Support Fund is completely funded through the generous support of donors to the Cancer Care Foundation, and can have life-changing impacts for cancer patients who are truly struggling financially.
