VOLUNTEERS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED IN APRIL
Phthalates (pronounced THA-lates) are a group of chemicals that can make products (usually plastics) softer and more flexible. They are sometimes called plasticizers, but many other chemicals are also called plasticizers.
Phthalates are used in a range of products, including:
- polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic, which is a specific type of plastic used in some products, such as shower curtains
- medical plastics, such as PVC IV bags and tubes
- children’s toys and supplies
- cosmetics, such as nail polish and perfumes
Advocating for cancer patients
Our staff and volunteers meet with elected officials from local, provincial and national governments to persuade them to make the fight against cancer one of their top priorities.
