Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women. And it is the second leading cause of death from cancer in Canadian women. Nearly everyone in Canada knows a person who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, whether it is a friend, a friend of a friend, a sister, a mother, a daughter, or a wife. We all know or have known someone who has had to battle with this disease.The Breast Cancer Society of Canada believes that every dollar Canadians donate to breast cancer research brings us one step closer to discovering the cause of breast cancer, better methods to prevent and detect it, treatments that are more effective and improving the quality of life for survivors.
