You fund Canada’s best cancer research @(Model.HeadingTag)>
Thanks to supporters like you, today about 64% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least five years after their diagnosis. This is up from 25% in the 1940s when CCS began funding research. This improvement is due to advances in early detection and more precise, less damaging ways to deliver surgery, radiotherapy and drug therapy.
In 2020/21, your generosity enabled us to invest $46.8 million in life-saving research across all cancer types. This included $11 million to enable more than 150 clinical trials by the best and brightest researchers to test new strategies and to treat and prevent cancer.
