The 29th edition of the Daffodil Ball

The Daffodil Ball’s in person return was a huge success. The funds raised will help finance innovative projects throughout Quebec. A special thank you goes out to our donors for their generosity and support.

The importance of research

An inspiring testimony by Olivia Gatien and the key role the CCS team plays to support people diagnosed with cancer.

The Effects of the Pandemic

We continue to exert our efforts despite the pandemic, but we still urgently need donations to support innovative research and essential services for people affected by cancer. COVID-19 changed everything in our lives and created significant delays in cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Key players are involved in important cancer research work in Quebec

A new partnership with CQDM (Consortium de recherche biopharmaceutique), the Cole Foundation, and Oncopole has led to a new four-year grant program worth up to $5 million. This program builds on the strong commitment of the CCS and its partners to fund research work in Quebec. Project funding is aimed at accelerating development of platforms, tools, and treatments to support advances in pediatric and young patient cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Financial Support for Travel

This program helps thousands of people get to their doctor’s appointments and rids them of the financial stress caused by such travels.

Cancer Information Helpline

Our Cancer Information Helpline is an essential service for people affected by cancer. It lends a sympathetic ear and provides personalized support to those in need.

Jacques‑Cantin Lodge

Our goal is to provide all the amenities necessary, with the warmth and comfort of home, to people staying at Jacques Cantin Lodge. It allows families to be there for loved ones affected by cancer as they undergo treatment.
