About Me
The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (CSSN) is a national network of patients, families, survivors, friends, community partners, funders and sponsors who have come together to take action to promote the very best standards of care, whether it be early diagnosis, timely treatment and follow-up care, support for cancer patients, or issues related to survivorship or quality of end of life care. This year, CCSN is prioritizing prostate, breast and lung cancers as well as metastatic cancer.

While the number of cases continues to increase for most cancers, earlier diagnosis and better treatment have resulted in a decrease in mortality. Thankfully, many more people are surviving cancer, which has led to increased need for new programs and activities to serve survivors and to ensure that they are fully re-integrated into society once treatment ends and full recovery begins.

CCSN works to connect patients, survivors and other stakeholder groups with decision makers and the wider community to engage in discussion and to act on evidence-based best practices to alleviate the medical, emotional, financial and social costs of cancer and encourage research on ways to overcome barriers to optimal cancer care for survivors in Canada.

CCSN informs and trains patients and survivors to enable them to self-advocate, speak to media and decision makers about survivorship issues, and sit at every table where decisions about cancer care and research are being made.
