Are you ready to join the fight?

by Canadian Cancer Society

Summary

Cancer threatens us all. We have more impact against more cancers in more communities than other cancer charity in Canada. That's why we promise to do everything we can to prevent cancer and save lives. And we promise to empower, inform, educate, advocate and support those living with this disease. We fight back by funding clinical trials and research into better treatments and cures. The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage, a symbol of life. It says we will fight back and beat cancer.

Challenge

Cancer will attack over 173,000 of us this year. It does not discriminate. It has taken our brothers and sisters, our mothers and fathers, our children and our friends. Cancer is relentless. But so are we. We are the Canadian Cancer Society and we are fighting back.

Solution

Currently, the range of basic cancer research funded by the Canadian Cancer Society is vast and sets the stage for a new era of advances in our fight against the disease. Right now basic researchers are: - looking for "markers" which can detect different types of cancers - why certain cancer cells and tumours become resistant - genetic basis of cancers - testing and analyzing substances to fight against cancer or potential causes

Long-Term Impact

Eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer
