Inspired by W.A. Ward’s quote “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. Dream it and you can become it,” Linda Eagen’s dream is to change the cancer experience for families in our community – families like her own.

To that end, Linda’s involvement with the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation began fourteen years ago, first volunteering on the Board of Directors, then transitioning into Campaign Director, and most recently serving as the Cancer Foundation’s President & CEO for the past ten years.

In her role as President and CEO, Linda ensures that cancer remains a priority year-round in our community. Through support of research and clinical trials and through the delivery of Cancer Coaching, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is changing the cancer experience and giving families in our community access to the best, personalized cancer treatment and care right here at home.

With her lifelong career in the not-for-profit industry combined with her entrepreneurial spirit and business education, Linda brings a passion for fundraising and a love for change and innovation that continues to help the Cancer Foundation thrive in our community.

Inspired and honoured to work with an incredible Board of Directors and a top-notch team, Linda hopes that in the coming years, the Cancer Foundation will be recognized as a top performer and one of the best places to work in Canada.

In her spare time, Linda enjoys spending time with her family, reading, learning, and being outdoors.

I joined the Cancer Foundation 10 years ago when my Dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer. With a career spanning a quarter century in philanthropy, this has been the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. I feel very fortunate that every day I get to work with volunteers, donors and health-care professionals who share my passion of helping families in our community who are facing cancer – providing them support and hope for the future.
