SUPPORT CANADIANS LIVING WITH CANCER
Our impact report illustrates how we are committed to deliver on our promise to have more impact, against more cancers, in more communities, than any other cancer charity in Canada. We do this by fighting all cancers on multiple fronts – through prevention, advocacy, research and supporting those living with cancer.
We’ve been with you in the fight for life. We are finding new ways to prevent cancer and continue to support those living with cancer. There is still so much more to do.
Our generous donors
The Canadian Cancer Society is grateful for the generous support of our donors. We are pleased to recognize those who contributed $1,000 or more in 2016/17. From individuals and teams to organizations and foundations, the generosity of these key partners enables the Society to fund life-saving cancer research and provide those living with cancer the information and support that they need.

Within about 12 hours of being at Camp Goodtime, everything started to change, and that week was cathartic, transformative. It was the first time I got to know myself.
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.
