Life is bigger than cancer

Please support the Canadian Cancer Society, the largest national charitable funder of research into all cancers.

Right now, the Canadian Cancer Society is funding life-changing research and providing much needed support services so that people living with cancer have a life that is bigger than their diagnosis.

The simple fact is that nearly one in two Canadians is expected to hear the words "It's cancer" in their lifetime. That means that if it's not you, it may be the person beside you. A friend. A neighbour. Or a loved one even closer than that.

Accelerating Research

Researchers are racing to find better treatments and while progress has been made in how we prevent, diagnose, treat and live with and beyond cancer, we have more work to do.

Together, with your support, in 2020 the Canadian Cancer Society funded more than 800 researchers across all types of cancer and nearly 6,000 over the past three decades.

We now know that cancer isn't one, but more than 100 shape-shifting diseases. That's why we fund the geniuses and dreamers doing research across all types of cancer. Some of it is nothing short of miraculous.

But they can only find that miracle, if we can fund that miracle.

Please support the Canadian Cancer Society, the largest national charitable funder of research into all cancers.

A support system like no other

Only the Canadian Cancer Society has a nationwide support system that makes a real difference for people living with cancer, and those devoted to their care. This support is needed more than ever as feelings of isolation and anxiety are heightened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
