The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is a non-profit organization that advocates for both the physical and emotional wellbeing of cancer patients in Canada. CCS has a variety of networks, support programs, and resources available to cancer patients to help guide and support them during this challenging experience. They also encourage the development of more effective physical therapies to treat cancer and more effective ways to psychologically aid cancer patients. CCS funds the most promising research across all cancer types, so they can give all Canadians hope – no matter where they are in their cancer experience. Research helps cancer patients attain a higher standard of life, both in a physical and mental aspect, during the course of their treatment which provides stability and general wellbeing.
