Bladder Cancer Canada
Bladder cancer is the 5th most common cancer in Canada – with about 9,000 new cases expected in 2018 alone. Yet, most Canadians are not even aware of bladder cancer.
The Bladder Cancer Canada Awareness Walk is held annually in cities across Canada by Bladder Cancer Canada, a nationally-registered Canadian charity (Charitable Reg. #836126060 RR0001). The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness and funds in support of our mission to:
- Help bladder cancer patients and their support teams address the day-to-day issues of this disease
- Increase awareness of bladder cancer among the general public and medical community
- Fund research which pursues the diagnosis, treatment and elimination of bladder cancer
We do not receive government funding and rely on your efforts and support from our donors to fulfill our mission. The walk also serves to create a sense of community and support for patients in our region. In this respect, the walk is of immeasurable value. Here are the details:
