We do this by:
- taking a stand on important cancer issues
- raising Canadians’ awareness and understanding about these issues
- influencing government to pass public policies that will help prevent cancer and help people living with cancer
The Canadian Cancer Society believes that working with government and legislators to bring about healthy public policies is a vital part of the fight against cancer.
We realize that our efforts cannot even be compared to what women face when they hear the words ... ‘you have cancer.’
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
