Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is FamilyQuest?

FamilyQuest is a charitable social network designed to connect Atlantic Canadian families & friends in a mission to solve cancer together.

Why should this matter to me?

Considering that over 40% of Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime, cancer touches all our lives, whether directly or indirectly in our community. Add to this that Atlantic Canadians have the highest rates in the country, the problem is serious. This is why we all have to play our own small part of the solution.

How does it work?

This is done by empowering families to show their support, interest, creativity and generosity in direct support of research projects being conducted at the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute.

Is there a cost?

There is no cost to become a member, connect with others, create causes or use any other function of the network. However, we do strongly encourage everyone to make at least one charitable pledge for as little as 25 cents a day, proceeds of which directly support cancer research in Atlantic Canada.

Do I have to live in Atlantic Canada to join?

Cancer has no borders, and neither does this initiative to solve it. As such, although FamilyQuest proceeds support cancer research activities in Atlantic Canada, we welcome participants from anywhere.

Can I really make a difference by pledging only a quarter a day?

Yes. That’s the beauty of a charitable social network like FamilyQuest – it gives members the ability to play a small part of a much bigger solution. If we join forces and each pledge as little as a quarter a day, these small contributions from many can make a big impact on the development of new cancer treatment diagnosis and treatment methods in Atlantic Canada. What better investment to save future lives?
