The Canadian Cancer Society recognizes that the challenge of cancer is bigger than any single organization. We are proud to work in partnership with many national and provincial organizations and corporations to improve the lives of Canadians touched by cancer.
We are thankful for the support of these partners, alliances and joint initiatives that share in our commitment to the fight against 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.
