Cancer Day of Action

Wednesday, November 3rd will mark the second “Cancer Day of Action” in provincial legislatures across Canada. This day is an opportunity for organizations, health professionals, concerned citizens, patients and family members affected by cancer to meet face-to-face with elected officials, deliver key messages, and demand action on cancer. The key message this year is the need for fair, consistent access to treatment across Canada for cancer and other major conditions. Millions of Canadians have no financial protection from the high costs of treatment. Learn more about this issue here: http://www.controlcancer.ca/take-action-cdc.

There are a number of ways you can get involved between now and November 3rd, to help make this event a success:
1. Take our 2-minute survey – share your thoughts and opinions about cancer. Your info is never shared with third-parties or used to solicit donations.

2. Take part in our e-activism campaign: http://www.fairtreatment.ca/. Use our easy website to quickly build and send a letter to your MLA.

3. Be a part of the action on November 3rd at Province House in Halifax, NS. Contact joannep@c2cc.ca
 if you are interested in meeting face-to-face with Nova Scotia MLAs. Whether you are a health professional, an advocate, or a person who has been personally affected by cancer or drug coverage, your stories and ideas can make a difference.

Canadians of all ages, experiences and ethnicities can have their say in cancer care and prevention. The more surveys, connections and community conversations we achieve – the more powerful our national voice will be on November 3rd. Pass it on.
