What does the Canadian Cancer Society do? The Canadian Cancer Society was founded in 1938 with the goal to raise cancer awareness due to the rising number of people who were being treated too late. Since then, they have risen to become a national level community of volunteers, all dedicated to the end of cancer and to support those living with cancer. In addition to spreading awareness and creating a community for support, the Canadian Cancer Society invests it's donations into cutting edge research. 


"In 2015–2016, the Canadian Cancer Society funded $44 million in leading-edge research supporting more than 350 projects across the country, thanks to our donors. As the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in Canada, we are leading the fight against cancer."


The Canadian Cancer Society strives to provide answers, ranging from what is cancer to risk factors and next steps. With their Peer Support Service and their online community CancerConnection.ca, you can always find support from someone who's been there.
