It takes a society to take on cancer

What does it take to take on cancer? It takes all of us. 

As the saying goes, ‘It takes a village.’ But to take on cancer, it takes more than a village. We believe it takes a society. It takes a community rallying together around a shared cause.
It takes a society honours something that is deeply true about cancer: that it is big, and it is endlessly complex. And any kind of progress – better treatments, better care, better support – can only happen when we work together. 
Profound impact is possible when we combine our actions with the actions of others. Our goal at the Canadian Cancer Society is to inspire people of all ages, from all backgrounds and all parts of the country to come together to take on cancer’s biggest issues.

Often when people think about cancer research they think about the scientist alone in the lab... but there is an entire team behind me.

It's so important to have credible, verifiable information from knowledgeable experts because there is a lot of misconception around this disease.
