Life is bigger than cancer
At the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), we know that cancer can change a lot of things. But we also know that for people with cancer, and their families, life is more than a diagnosis. That’s why we’re always looking for ways to improve the cancer experience by helping people live longer and enhancing their quality of life. We’re here to help and support people live their lives more fully. Because we believe that life is bigger than cancer.
About the Canadian Cancer Society
Our vision is a world where no one fears cancer. With the support of our volunteers and donors, we improve and save lives by taking a comprehensive approach to our work against more than 100 types of cancer. CCS funds research, provides services to those living with cancer, advocates on important cancer-related issues and educates and empowers people to make healthy choices.
CCS is the only national charity that supports all people with all cancers in communities across the country. We have a presence in 70+ communities across Canada and are the only national organization dedicated to supporting the entire cancer journey, from diagnosis to survivorship.
Thanks to donors like you, we are making progress. Today, over 60% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive, compared to about 25% in the 1940s, when we began funding research.
Your support matters
With nearly one in two Canadians diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, the need for your support has never been greater.
Donate today to help invest in the best cancer research in Canada, provide the largest cancer support system in the country and advocate on behalf of Canadians for important social change.
