The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation
It May Seem Like We’ve Been Fighting This
Fight Forever. But We Haven’t.
There was a time, not long ago, when cancer
was a death sentence. And the treatment was
dreaded almost as much as the disease.
We’ve seen that change in our lifetime, at
The Princess Margaret.
We’ve seen the entire process of cancer
care forever altered. We’ve seen radical
mastectomies become lumpectomies. We’ve
seen the precision of image guided therapies
spare more healthy tissue. We’ve seen
undreamed-of advances at the cellular level and
revolutionary work in healing beyond the body.
All in our lifetime.
All at The Princess Margaret.
We see the things we do give hope to millions,
one person at a time. We’ve transformed
a provincial cancer hospital into one of the
world’s top five cancer research centres.
As a proud partner of the University Health
Network, we’ve grown our people into
the thousands - each of them dedicated to
finding more effective ways to care for cancer
patients. We share our research findings
and clinical expertise globally. Through our
critical teaching role, we are training the next
generation of cancer experts and impacting
patient care at The Princess Margaret, across
Canada and around the globe.
We see leading researchers, from all over the
world, leave their homes to come here. Because
this is where they believe the fight will be
finished. In our lifetime.
Yes, we are still losing people to cancer. But
more and more, we are controlling the cancer,
instead of the cancer controlling us. We now
know that every cancer is as individual as the
patient. So we’re developing personalized care
that delivers the right treatment to the right
patient at the right time. We are pioneering
new, innovative treatment options, like using
a patient’s own immune system to fight cancer.
This is the future of cancer medicine, and we
are on the forefront of that progress, today.
It may seem like we’ll be fighting this fight
forever. But we won’t. Because we’re closing in.
We have the momentum. We have the talent.
And we have the passion. This is the front line.
We are Canada’s cancer warriors. But we can’t
do it alone.
The world needs to hear The Princess Margaret
message. So share it at every opportunity with
anyone who will listen.
It’s a simple message, really. But it’s a message
of incredible power: we are conquering cancer
at Canada’s cancer research centre, The Princess
Margaret. In our lifetime.
