Supporting Cancer Care in Your Community
According to the Canadian
Cancer Society (2019 projections), about one in two Canadians will be diagnosed
with cancer in their lifetime, and one in four will die from it. About half of
these new cases of cancer (48%) will be lung, breast, colorectal and prostate
cancer. Trillium Health Partners provides cancer care across all three sites to
meet the growing need in our community. Last year we cared for over 2,300
inpatients (a 20% increase from the year before), with over 36,000 clinic
visits (a 4.5% increase).
By purchasing a T-shirt or by making a donation to the Mississauga Fire Fighters Benevolent Fund’s fundraising campaign, you are making a difference by helping to ensure that the cancer program at Trillium Health Partners remains one of the best in the country.
Your generous support of our cancer program will help us continue to transform cancer care in our community, so that our patients can continue to receive high-quality, specialized care without having to go outside of their community.
We are proud to be recognized as a top performing cancer centre by Cancer Care Ontario for having some of the shortest wait times for radiation therapy and cancer surgery. With your investment, we can continue to reduce wait times and make it easier for patients to access the services they need at every stage of their cancer journey.
This is your opportunity to join the Mississauga Fire Fighters Benevolent Fund in helping to make a difference in the lives of so many people affected by cancer. Thank you for your support!
