Canadian Cancer Society Launches Second Daffodil Daily Lottery Fundraising Program

For over a decade Miratel Solutions have proudly provided lottery fundraising services on behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society. Officially established in Saskatchewan in 1938 to provide education on the early signs and diagnosis of cancer, the Society has evolved into a national organization that helps Canadians across the country, with over 170,000 volunteers and 1,200 full-time staff.

The Society’s efforts in battling this disease have improved cancer survival rates from an approximate 33% in the 1960’s to 62% today. Despite these improvements the startling statistics still estimate that 177,800 Canadians were diagnosed with some form of cancer in 2011 with 66,900 of those being Ontarians.

The society currently funds over 40 clinical trials and 122 grants and awards for work towards various forms of cancer. It’s this extensive work in curing and eradicating cancer that it is so important to support this valuable organization. Five other reasons to support Canadian Cancer Society research includes:

  1. A 2010 study showed that researchers funded by the Canadian Cancer Society are making a bigger scientific impact than other researchers in Canada.
  2. The Canadian Cancer Society uses an internationally recognized peer review process to allocate its research dollars to the most promising projects across the country.
  3. In addition to basic laboratory research, the Society provides funding for clinical trials and behavioural research focused on prevention, early detection, screening and quality of life issues.
  4. Thanks to Society-funded research, cancer treatment and the quality of life for patients during treatment have dramatically improved in the past 20 years.
  5. Cancer research saves lives. Today, 62 percent of people diagnosed with cancer will survive, compared with 1 in 3 in the 1960s.

As the largest national cancer charity and funder of cancer research in Canada, the Canadian Cancer Society manages many community based fundraising initiatives throughout the country and their regular lottery fundraising program is one of their largest and most successful initiatives.lottery-fundraising-services-CCS-daffodil-daily-lottery
