The Canadian Cancer Society is made up of inspiring people who are leaders in their fields and whose knowledge and expertise make a real difference in the fight for life–from helping fund internationally recognized breakthroughs in cancer research to publishing cancer information that is the most current and credible in the country, to raising public awareness and providing much-needed services and support to Canadians living with cancer. Our people have the energy and passion to contribute to a better future for others and to work tirelessly to improve lives now.
We realize that our efforts cannot even be compared to what women face when they hear the words ... ‘you have cancer.’
