Framing the Crisis and Previewing the Opportunity

Greg Thomson and Karen Greve Young, April 2011


Cancer kills more Canadians, at younger ages, than any other disease. Eighty percent of Canadians say they are concerned about cancer. Charity Intelligence shares this concern, so we did what we do best: we harnessed the passion of our research analysts to examine Canada's cancer crisis, to help Canadian donors transform their concern into intelligent giving.
