The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is pleased to present Better Together: Annual Highlights 2012/13, which showcases selected achievements in the Partnership's recent work with partners throughout the cancer community. As the first year of the Partnership's second five-year mandate, 2012/13 was our first year delivering against a new strategic plan that will further our coordinated long-term efforts to improve cancer outcomes for Canadians.

Better Together was prepared with partners' busy schedules in mind and therefore offers a brief summary of the accomplishments of 2012/13. A more detailed view of the Partnership's recent work is available in the full 2012/13 Annual Report. We are grateful for the contributions of our partners and look forward to broader and deeper impact as we continue to drive Canada's cancer strategy.

In memory of Dr. Larry Librach, a Canadian palliative care leader

We wish to express our deep sadness at the loss of one of Canada's heroes in palliative care. Larry Librach's vision, leadership, and passion in advancing the field of palliative care are a true legacy; one that will live on and continue to benefit many Canadians to come. Please visit the Temmy Latner Center for Palliative Care website for a complete overview of Larry's significant accomplishments.

One of Larry's last contributions was a candid video interview on May 23, 2013 about his own personal experience facing a life-threatening illness. Please take a moment to watch.
