CCS adapting to COVID-19 realities to support Canadians during and after the pandemic
The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is dedicated to improving the cancer experience by helping people live longer, fuller lives. We fund game-changing research, advocate to governments for important social change and provide a comprehensive cancer support system so that no one faces cancer alone. We believe that life is bigger than cancer.
The Impact Report illustrates CCS’s commitment to supporting Canadians with all cancers in communities across the country. Read about the difference we made together in our 2018 Impact Report. Throughout the year, you generously gave us your support and we are grateful for your contributions. There is still more work to be done, and our vision to create a world where no Canadian fears cancer is only achievable if we work collectively with people united by the same goals. Together, we are a force-for-life in the face of cancer.
I was in total shock when I heard the diagnosis of cancer. Cancer to me was an adult’s disease. Being a 13-year-old teenager, it certainly wasn’t even on my radar.
