Support the metastatic cancer cause
A metastatic diagnosis – the spread of cancer to other parts of the body – can evoke complex and difficult emotions for patients and their loved ones because it means the cancer is unlikely to be cured. In most cases, the goal of treatment for this stage of the disease is to prolong patient survival and maintain their quality of life.
Metastatic patients and their families have a challenging path that is unique from other cancer journeys. Your monthly donations are the best way to help Canadians with metastatic cancer because they ensure steady funding is available to enable CCS’s nationwide support system and to fund groundbreaking research to better understand why cancer metastasizes, help find improvements in treatments, and explore their associated side effects to improve quality of life.
