The Canadian Cancer Society is the only national charitable organization dedicated to funding game-changing research on all cancers, advocating to make healthy living easier and supporting Canadians affected by cancer so that no one faces cancer alone.
Read about our historic year in the 2017 Impact Report. Through our year of transformation, you generously gave us your support and we are grateful. There is still so much for us to do and we look forward to continuing to work towards a world where no Canadian fears cancer.
I was in total shock when I heard the diagnosis of cancer. Cancer to me was an adult’s disease. Being a 13-year-old teenager, it certainly wasn’t even on my radar.
Together we can reduce the burden of cancer
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
