Support services – our impact
Our Cancer Information Service, peer support and online communities offer assistance and information for people touched by cancer. We measured the impact of these programs and services, and we are glad to report our findings. The numbers show that the Society – with the support of our dedicated volunteers and generous donors – helps people to have a better quality of life.

Great progress has been made
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.
