Provided trusted information and compassionate support to 46,000+ Canadians through our Cancer Information Helpline

Provide more than 3,300 breast accessories, wigs and headwear

Brought thousands of people to their cancer treatments, whether they required transportation assistance or a stay in one of our warm, supportive lodges

Successfully advocated for the extension of Canada’s Employment Insurance Sickness Benefit from 15 to 26 weeks to ensure people facing cancer don’t have to choose between a paycheque and cancer treatment

“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.”
