Public service announcements

Our public service announcements (PSAs) provide important messages about cancer prevention and the services offered by the Canadian Cancer Society.

PSAs help the Society build awareness, promote important community services, recruit volunteers and support special fundraising events. PSAs are available in print format for newspapers and magazines, video for TV and audio for radio.

  • Cancer changes everything

    Whether you have cancer or you are a caregiver, family member or friend, cancer can change everything. But it doesn't have to be this way. We can change cancer. With the support of our donors and volunteers, the Canadian Cancer Society continues to make great strides in preventing cancer, saving lives and supporting people living with cancer. Change depends on you.
