2016 "Give for a Cure" Campaign

Cancer is the leading cause of death in Canada. About 2 in 5 Canadians will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime and 1 in 4 will die of this disease.

The scarcity of financial resources for research is a major concern for the scientific community. Despite all its efforts and the great generosity of the public, the Cancer Research Society receives an increasing number of requests for funding every year, deserving requests which alas, it is unable to fulfill.

This is why - in 2009 - the Cancer Research Society launched the « Give for a Cure » campaign. Through this fundraising initiative, the Canadian scientific community, Cancer Research Society employees and members of the Board of Directors join forces every year to raise funds to award an additional cancer research grant to the most deserving research team in the country.

Our first ever “Give for a Cure” grant was awarded to Dr. John McCormick of Western University in London, Ontario. Will YOU be the next grantee?


         Dr. John McCormick
“My research team is honoured to receive the first "Give for a Cure" grant from the Cancer Research Society and we would like to thank all of the individuals who have generously supported this campaign. This grant will now allow us to continue our work focused on the development and testing of novel targeted immunotherapies for cancer treatment.”

The Cancer Research Society profoundly believes that the key to success and the only hope for a cure is research. Thus, the members of our Board of Directors and employees of the Cancer Research Society have decided to pursue their support to this year’s campaign. Moreover, the Cancer Research Society will match all researchers’ contributions; This means that your gift will go twice as far in the fight against cancer.

Thank you for your support to the “Give for a Cure” campaign.
