About This Charity

Our Mission

Alli’s Journey is a charitable organization that focuses on raising funds for young adults, ages 18-35, with cancer. Your contribution will be used to support ongoing initiatives (Comfort Bags, Comfort Rooms) of Alli's Journey and for education and research. Our Comfort Bags bring necessary items to young adult cancer patients who are going through chemotherapy and other treatments in hospitals in the Toronto area; they also include information about community resources. Another initiative is our Alli’s Journey Community Rooms program, through which we raise funds to create unique spaces for the young adults within facilities that have cancer treatment and/or support programs. These spaces will be designed and used for programming as well as offer additional opportunities for networking, socializing and education that are directed towards the specific needs of the young adult cancer patient. We are very excited about our first room which is located at the Sunnybrook location of the Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation.

About Our Charity

Courage, strength and heart: three traits that every young adult battling cancer exhibits. Alli Shapiro, founder of Alli’s Journey, exhibited just that in her seven-year fight with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma — courage, strength — and heart, to live with this disease using humour, humility and belief as her strongest weapons. Tragically, Alli succumbed to her disease at the age of 26, with the same courage, strength and heart — but most of all with dignity — in July 2006. Alli’s Journey focuses on the segment of the younger population that is struggling with cancer in various forms and degrees of substance.
