Help us ensure a future without cancer (2023)

Through your support, the Foundation helps ensure there can be a life with cancer, and a future without it.

Because one in two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer.

Because every year, 20,000 of them and their families will walk through the doors of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), seeking advanced treatment, understanding care and unwavering support.

Because the MUHC's cutting-edge research centre has the potential to drive change for cancer patients all around the world.

Cedars Cancer Foundation takes a stand for cancer patients.

Together we stand for cancer patients
