About Mrs. Berta Kamprad's Cancer Foundation

In the early 1950s Ingvar Kamprad’s mother was diagnosed with cancer. The treatment she received could not save her life, and in 1956, she passed away, 53 years old. After his mother’s death, Ingvar Kamprad started a fund to raise money for cancer research and in 1986 he founded the Mrs. Berta Kamprad’s Cancer Foundation with the purpose of supporting the research and treatment of cancer diseases, preferably by supporting the cancer research conducted at Skåne University Hospital, Lund.
