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.
Even though we are high school students, we were able to raise so much money for the Canadian Cancer Society. It just goes to show what can happen when a small group of people come together for a great cause.
The 5-year cancer survival rate has increased from 25% in the 1940s to 60% today.
