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.
Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
