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.
Seeing my sister Erin – a young mother – struggle with the emotional blow and then the physical toll of cancer treatment made me want to do something to help women feel confident.
Making progress in the cancer fight
The 5-year cancer survival rate has increased from 25% in the 1940s to 60% today.
