You are making a difference.
Thank you so much for your continuous support of the Princess Margaret Home Lotteries. Your unwavering dedication fuels our clinicians and researchers in their mission to undertake world-leading cancer research and deliver excellent care, benefiting patients at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, across Canada and around the world.
With cancer remaining the number one cause of death for Canadians, our top priority is to accelerate life-saving cancer research and care. As a world-leading cancer centre, the Princess Margaret is pushing the boundaries of knowledge and making real progress against the disease.
Thanks to generous supporters like you, our researchers and clinicians have been responsible for some of the world’s biggest cancer breakthroughs, including the discovery of the stem cell – one the most seminal medical findings of the past century. More recently, researchers have developed a simple blood test that can detect cancers earlier and hold promise of earlier treatment.
These advances are making a difference. Today Canadians have a greater chance of surviving cancer – from a 5-year survival rate of 25% in the 1940’s to over 64% today!
Your lottery ticket purchase is more than just an opportunity to win some great prizes; it is an opportunity to give real hope for patients living with cancer and hope to their loved ones.
On behalf of everyone here at The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, and on behalf of our patients who benefit from your support, we thank you for being a part of our passionate community.
