Canadian Cancer Society wishes Jack Layton a speedy recovery

27 July 2011

Toronto -

Like so many other Canadians, the volunteers and staff of the Canadian Cancer Society are saddened to hear that Mr. Layton is battling cancer again. His courage in fighting the disease, as well as his ongoing fight to improve healthcare for millions of Canadians, has been inspirational. We are grateful for his continued support to raise awareness and funds towards our mission to eradicate cancer and assist those living with the disease. We wish Mr. Layton a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with him and his family.

The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is the only national charity that supports Canadians with all cancers in communities across the country. No other organization does what we do; we are the voice for Canadians who care about cancer. We fund groundbreaking research, provide a support system for all those affected by cancer and advocate to governments for important social change.
