Our Team is Strong!
Our team is going to have a great time paddling for all Manitobans and their families who are on a cancer journey!
The Canadian Cancer Society funds more research every year than any other national charity and most importantly, it gets results
* Research funded by the Society has allowed doctors to detect cancer sooner, improve treatments and get better outcomes so more people live
* The Society funds research into all forms of cancer from the most common to the rarest form
The Society also provides vital community based programs and services that support cancer patients and their families from getting cancer patients to and from treatment to providing counselling, wigs, and breast prosthesis
The Cancer society also speaks up for cancer patients ensuring that all levels of government remain responsive to the changing needs of cancer patients and thri families.
* In 2011, with the support of Manitobans, the Society convinced the provincial government to cover the cost cancer treatment and support drugs for patients fighting cancer at home (on an out-patient basis)
* No other charity worked for this change!
* Since the Home Cancer Drug Program was introduced 14,484 Manitoba families have benifited. The program has covered nearly $82 million in drug costs at a time when family incomes are declining and costs increasing
