Your donations at work
With you by our side, the Canadian Cancer Society is leading the fight against all cancers. Because of you, we continue to have more impact, against more cancers, in more communities, than any other cancer charity in Canada. Your generous donations fund:
- life-saving cancer research
- information and support services for cancer patients and their families
- prevention efforts that reduce your risk of cancer
- advocacy initiatives that protect the health of all Canadians
In 2012, with the support of our donors, we invested $133 million in the fight for life. Highlights include:
- We funded $46 million in life-saving research that is transforming the way cancer is prevented, diagnosed, and treated.
- Our volunteers drove 25,000 patients to cancer treatments.
- We responded to over 55,000 inquiries through our Cancer Information Service. By phone and email we answered questions about cancer and helped people find programs and services in their communities.
- We distributed more than 1.2 million free brochures and booklets on all cancer topics.
