The cause we fight, the victories we share

We have a profound responsibility to fight cancer by any means possible. This year alone there will be 177,800 new cases of cancer in Canada. We know that we need to attack cancer at a number of levels if we want to have an impact, including funding groundbreaking research, advocating for healthy public policy and delivering programs to communities, cancer patients and their families.

We have had a number of wins this year and each victory is a testament to the strength and courage of our supporters.

One of our investments in research funded a groundbreaking approach in monitoring families with an abnormal susceptibility to cancer. This advancement is changing lives not only in Canada but around the world. The Toronto Protocol developed by Dr. David Malkin, is offering patients a new lease on life, which would not be possible without our fundraising efforts.

This year, out Cancer Information Service answered its one millionth call. Since the service began in 1996, Canadians have turned to us for information, support and resources about specific cancers and treatments. We know that cancer patients will continue to turn to us for the information they need.

At every step of the journey, our impact has grown through the continued generosity of our donors, the commitment of our 65,000 volunteers and the determination of our staff.

However, it is the stories of the people with whom we engage that keep us going. With your continued support, we will create a world where no one fears cancer.
