The Partnership convenes volunteers with a personal connection to cancer to enrich communications about Canada's cancer strategy
Now online at 1 in 3: An in-depth look at adolescent and young adult cancer in Canada On October 28, the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer convened volunteers from across the country with a personal connection to cancer to launch a new program that will enhance the level of patient, survivor and caregiver engagement in communications about Canada's cancer strategy. The program builds on an existing roster of volunteers that inform our work through various advisory structures and volunteer opportunities. These perspectives are critical to the Partnership's success in reducing the incidence of cancer, lessening the likelihood of Canadians dying from cancer, and enhancing the quality of life for those affected by cancer.

The communications volunteers shared their cancer stories and participated in traditional and social media training sessions, and will have an opportunity to share their perspectives and inform the Partnership's work through various communications channels in the future.
