It’s Giving Tuesday, and the Canadian Cancer Society is one of the organizations hoping to bolster its fundraising efforts today.
The society has its Holiday Campaign, which spokesperson Lina Mohamed states will go towards cancer research.
"It feels world class discoveries had really formed our understanding of cancer. Of the largest, national, charitable funder of cancer research; the Canadian Cancer Society invests in the most promising research across all cancer types and across the entire cancer continue. We have a rich legacy of really adapting research that helps Canadians and Manitobans live with and beyond cancer."
Mohamed says the COVID-19 pandemic has increased demands for many of the society’s programs due to backlogs in the healthcare system.
Additionally, donations made today will be matched up to 70 thousand dollars by an anonymous donor.
