VOLUNTEERS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED IN APRIL
Cancer information kits
One of the priorities of the Canadian Cancer Society is to ensure that people with cancer and their caregivers have access to the information and support they need.
We know that it is sometimes difficult to understand a cancer diagnosis, so we have created information kits for prostate, breast, lung and colorectal cancers. The kits contain important resources currently available from the Canadian Cancer Society.
All of our kits are available by calling 1-800-455-9090 or emailing email@example.com.
We also offer our one-on-one Peer Support Service where you or your caregiver can be matched with a volunteer with a similar cancer experience. This telephone service is free, accessible and confidential. We can also provide you with answers to your questions about cancer. Access the program by calling 1-888-939-3333, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Establishing a national caregivers strategy
The Canadian Cancer Society is actively lobbying the federal government to establish a national caregivers strategy to ensure there is more financial support for this important group of people.
