Canadian Cancer Society statement on the death of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford

22 March 2016


The volunteers and staff of the Canadian Cancer Society are saddened to hear of the death of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford. Our thoughts are with the Ford family at this difficult time.


We extend our condolences to the Fords, who have long been supporters of the Canadian Cancer Society and the work that we do.

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.

Help us make a difference. Call 1-888-939-3333 or visit today.
