WHAT IS Childhood Cancer Canada Foundation?
To create victories for Canadian children with cancer through investment in national, collaborative, lifesaving research, empowering education, and community programs.
May 20, 1976 Bryan Eddy lead a march of more than 200 people across Canada to demonstrate on Parliament Hill in support of medical research. Bryan held a sign saying “I have leukemia. Without research I am on death row.” Bryan advocated for all those suffering from incurable diseases. On August 12, 1976 Bryan passed away at the age of 17 at the Montreal Children’s hospital.
In August 2019 Childhood Cancer Canada and Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation announced their plans to create a new unified foundation, combining their efforts toward more positive outcomes for children, adolescents, and young adults fighting cancer in Canada. The Foundation completed the unification in September 2020, with a new logo to symbolize the two foundations coming together as one. Childhood Cancer Canada is dedicated to saving, extending, and enhancing the lives of kids with cancer.
