The Canadian Cancer Society is impactful to me as it provides support, information, and a sense of community for individuals with cancer across Canada. This charity strives to help those affected (either directly or indirectly) by the disease on a national scale with research, community programs, and prevention advocacy.

The Canadian Cancer Society has had a profound impact across Canada, from inside our homes and among our communities, by trying to affect change with government/legislators at the provincial and federal level.

As someone with loved ones affected by cancer, this organisation hits close to home and is one I am happy to support.

About the Canadian Cancer Society

  • The Canadian Cancer Society is the only national charity that provides support to all Canadians with all types of cancer (over 100). They do this by:
  • Helping to fund research projects across Canada. Their funding goes to the diagnosis & aetiology of cancers, the course & prognosis of tumours, predictive and preventative measures, and to help improve the overall quality of life for people living with cancer.
  • Educating people so they can make informed decisions. In particular, informing people about early preventative measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of cancers.
  • Providing support services that have a profound impact on people with cancer and their loved ones. They have community services, peer support services, and several helplines that people can use in order to get information, their questions answered, and build supportive relationships.

You can help too!

The Canadian Cancer Society relies on volunteers and the support of the community to try and help individuals with cancer live an improved life. With the support of the community, the charity can continue to provide support to Canadians with cancer.

There are many ways to volunteer:

  • Transportation
  • Fundraising
  • Becoming an advocate
  • Peer support
  • Donating
