"Cancer doesn't discriminate. Every three minutes, another Canadian will hear the words, 'you have cancer.' It is the leading cause of death in this country,” said the CEO of the Canadian Cancer Society, Martin Kabat. "Participating in the Drive Hope program literally drives hope to those affected by this disease and helps them get to and from their treatments, one of the most difficult tasks they may face during their fight."
