16 Nov Giving Tuesday is November 28, 2017
Happening the Tuesday right after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two major days for commerce, GivingTuesday is a national day dedicated to giving. It’s a day when Canadian charities, businesses, and individuals come together for one simple purpose: to celebrate giving and give back.
At Save Your Skin Foundation, it is important that our donors know that every dollar they donate goes straight toward helping to meet the immediate needs of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer patients, as well as spreading awareness about this preventable disease.
Everything we do is led by the needs of the patient. The cancer landscape is anything but straightforward. Canada’s healthcare system is complex with many decision makers at federal and provincial levels that are responsible for the healthcare services we receive. We work to ensure the patient voice is heard and patients receive the best possible outcomes.
New treatments, lengthy drug approval processes, and differences in provincial healthcare funding mean patients sometimes fall through the cracks. We are there to support them and help them navigate their journey. We provide personalized support to patients to access the medical and financial assistance they need.
Help us continue to push forward the eradication of this deadly disease. Help us give Canadian melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer patients the best chance of survival. Be part of something that matters.
