Cancer Awareness Society


Cancer impacts everyone around us; whether it might be a personal battle, a family member’s story, or a friend’s experience, nobody is immune. Heading into our 15th year, the UWO Cancer Awareness Society is club with 100+ members who are passionately engaged in the fight against cancer. We are focused on bringing attention to the realities of cancer by deepening the understanding of our peers at Western through awareness campaigns and fundraising initiatives. Some of our signature events include “On Wednesdays We Wear Pink”, Movember, our Cancer Research & Care Symposium and annual Bar Night for Boobies fundraiser. Our proceeds go towards supporting the Canadian Cancer Society at the end of each year. CAS is currently working on potentially establishing volunteer opportunities for our members in future years! We believe in the importance of spreading information surrounding cancer prevention and early detection and hope to continue sharing stories of survivors with our Western community. Although we are facing a pandemic this year, we hope to find new and creative ways to promote our message while fighting against COVID-19. Also, our executive positions are currently live!
