“I’ve experienced the impact donations to the Canadian Cancer Society have first-hand. From staying at the lodge, to getting a wig when I lost my hair and consulting the website [] for information to help me understand my diagnosis and treatment options. Donations make a difference in people’s lives, including my own.”
