Join us. Be a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer.

At the Canadian Cancer Society, October is about more than just raising awareness of breast cancer. It's about joining a collective of Canadians who are proving that life is bigger than breast cancer. This collective helps fund the best breast cancer research, provides the largest cancer support system in the country, and advocates on behalf of all Canadians for important social change.

Together, we've made significant progress in breast cancer support, prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and care. But with more than 70 Canadians being diagnosed with breast cancer each day, we know there is so much more to be done.

Learn more about how you can join us and be a force-for-life in the face of breast cancer.
