Help save lives this holiday season
The Canadian Cancer Society's SunSense program provides children, families, teachers and caregivers with age appropriate sun safety information and materials to help Manitobans make informed sun safety decisions. The SunSense program is available at no charge and is an excellent teaching tool for Manitoba schools, preschools and daycares, Regional Health Authority programs, sports camps, youth groups, summer programs, pools and other recreation venues.
The need for sun safety is great. Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in people 15 – 29 years of age and incidence is increasing.
The SunSense program this year will run from May until August. If you are interested in ordering SunSense materials including the UV sensitive bracelets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. SunSense materials are only available for distribution within Manitoba.
On behalf of the SunSense Team, we thank you very much for your interest in our sun safety program. It is important to all of us to help you educate Manitoban children, families and caregivers on how to prevent and reduce their risk of developing skin cancer. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at email@example.com.
To order materials, please see the "Plan your SunSense presentation" section below.
I feel honoured that I was a part of these people’s lives … honoured to have been there for them, to have listened and offered hope that it will be okay.
A home away from home
For cancer patients who must travel a great distance to get to treatment, Canadian Cancer Society lodges offer a welcoming place to stay.
