Being an everyday cancer hero could change someone’s life forever

Did you know that a majority of Canadians will be affected by cancer, directly or indirectly? Fact is 2 in 5 Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime and while COVID-19 may be the current pandemic, cancer is the illness that remains the most impactful in someone’s life.

Not all superheroes wear capes

A sentence often used to thank and support our health workers who continually go above and beyond to provide care to those who need it the most. We want to remind people that being a hero can mean many things; a hero is a patient that faces cancer, it is a researcher or clinician involved in research, it is also a donor that generously gives to lifesaving cancer research that desperately needs to continue.

Research is key in outsmarting cancer

Cancer remains the leading cause of death in Canada and it is estimated that over 83,000 people lost their lives to cancer in 2020. Now, more than ever, Canadian researchers need to continue receiving your support to unlock the critical breakthroughs of tomorrow.

In the last 75 years, cancer research has more than doubled the survival rates of cancer patients, and we need your help to keep that number rising.

Since its inception, the Cancer Research Society’s sole purpose has been to fund the projects of cancer heroes in the research world who constitute some of Canada’s brightest and most innovative minds. With the support of heroes like yourself, they can pursue their groundbreaking work and continue improving the prevention, detection and treatment of all types of cancer.
