About the Canadian Cancer Society
As Canada's longest standing and most trusted cancer charity, the Canadian Cancer Society has been making a difference in the lives of Canadians for more than 75 years. We are a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
By taking a stand against cancer, we work to:
- Save lives - our researchers continue to discover new information that is transforming diagnosis and treatment.
- Stop cancer before it starts - our researchers are leading the way to find ways to prevent cancer while we promote healthy lifestyles and advocate for policies that protect the public.
- Ensure no one faces cancer alone - we offer community services and support to those living with cancer and their families and friends.
- Empower Canadians - we provide credible information on cancer to help people make informed choices about their health.
