We do this by:
- taking a stand on important cancer issues
- raising Canadians’ awareness and understanding about these issues
- influencing government to pass public policies that will help prevent cancer and help people living with cancer
The Canadian Cancer Society believes that working with government and legislators to bring about healthy public policies is a vital part of the fight against cancer.
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
