The need for funding
Major progress has been made in the fight against cancer, yet the battle is far from over. More and more people are touched by the disease, directly or indirectly, yet fewer and fewer people will die from it. Corporate sponsorships and donations are therefore essential to the realization of the Canadian Cancer Society's mission to eradicate cancer and to improve the quality of life of people living with cancer.
By supporting The Daffodil Ball, you can help the Society maintain and even increase its role in the never ending fight against cancer. We need your help.
$44 million for research in 2015-16
The funds raised by The Daffodil Ball allow CCS to:
- Fund research. In 2015-16, CCS invested more than $44 million for multifaceted research on various types of cancer.
- Support people living with cancer. CCS is there for patients and their families, to enhance their quality of life by offering information, as well as emotional, material and financial support.
- Help prevent cancer. CCS promotes healthy lifestyles and advocates for the implementation of public health policies, because nearly half of cancer cases can be prevented this way.
