The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network was created by a group of Canadians concerned about cancer and cancer survivorship issues.
- To promote health by conducting educational activities for cancer patients, caregivers, and survivors on the physical and financial impacts, and other relevant topics, associated with managing cancer.
- To promote health by providing individuals living with and survivors of cancer, and their caregivers, with access to related counselling, information, or support group programs.
- To advance education by organizing and participating in conferences and speaking engagements to the public on topics related to cancer.
- To advance education by conducting research on cancer patients’ and survivors’ physical, emotional, and financial well-being and disseminating the results of the research to the public.
- To undertake activities ancillary and incidental to the attainment of the above charitable purposes.
The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network will work to ensure that:
- Patients and survivors will easily access tools to understand decision making processes for positive change on issues critical to optimal patient care.
- Patients and survivors will be supported to make a difference through working with others to take action on those issues.
- Patients and survivors will obtain current knowledge about cancer treatment, options, and outcomes and be able to work together to end disparities in patient care and treatment.
- A network of patients, survivors, friends, families, community partners and sponsors will work together taking action to promote the very best standard of care, support, follow up and quality of life for patients and survivors.
