Kiss2Cure

Celebrate the Month of Love ... Kiss. Share. Give.

As a valued Prostate Cancer Canada supporter, we want you to be the first to know about a new initiative we’re undertaking to help all those affected by the most common forms of cancer in both women and men.
Love conquers all, and in that spirit, we're thrilled to announce the launch of our historic partnership with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Our jointKiss2Cure movement harnesses the power of love to make a real difference in the lives of women, men and families affected by breast and prostate cancer.
Watch the above video to hear the stories of Jeannette Labbé and Joe Turner of Calgary andDavid Brittain and Jane Rannie of Ottawa, two couples who have been affected by prostate and breast cancer. 
Starting today and leading up to Valentine's Day, we're inviting you, and Canadians everywhere to Kiss2Cure.

Participate for a chance to win 1 of 5 trips to a romantic destination!*

Making a difference is as easy as Kiss-2-3!
  1. Snap a photo kissing a loved one to help raise awareness about the most common cancers in men and women.
  2. Share your photo online using hashtag #Kiss2Cure for a chance to win 1 of 5 flights for two courtesy of Air Canada*.
  3. Make a heartfelt donation to life-saving research.
So whether it's a romantic smooch with your partner or a peck on the cheek with a friend or family member, every kiss shared will help us get closer to creating a future without breast and prostate cancer.
