The Canadian Cancer Society helps in the fight against breast cancer by funding promising research,providing information about breast cancer and screening, and offering emotional support to women with breast cancer and their families.
Since 1993, the Canadian Cancer Society has contributed more than $50 million to fund a broad range of research related both directly and indirectly to breast cancer. The Society contributes to breast cancer research through scientifically reviewed grants and through its partnership in the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Initiative.
