About Us

Cancer Care Foundation Newfoundland & Labrador (also known as the Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Foundation) 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.

Through the generosity of donors to the Cancer Care Foundation, we are able to purchase needed cancer treatment equipment, comfort equipment like blanket warmers, fund continuing education opportunities in oncology for Cancer Care staff, and fund supportive patient programs to assist cancer patients along their cancer journey.
