Every dollar you raise will help us to:

  • Fund life-saving cancer research. More people are surviving cancer than ever before. Today, 62% of people diagnosed with cancer will survive compared to only 25% in the 1940s when we began funding research.
  • Stop cancer before it starts. Our researchers are leading the fight to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for policies that protect our health.
  • Ensure no one facing cancer is alone by offering compassionate services and support to those living with cancer and their families and friends.
  • Empower Canadians with information about cancer to help them make informed choices about their health.
