BLADDER CANCER CANADA is the first and only Canadian patient advocacy organization dedicated to bladder cancer issues.
The story of Bladder Cancer Canada (BCC) began with two people just like you – or perhaps like your loved ones who have bladder cancer—David Guttman and Jack Moon. Their medical teams tended to the disease in their bodies, but they realized nourishment for their inner beings was missing – and was just as critical to their recovery.
They needed other bladder cancer patients to talk to about their fears and uncertainty. Someone to help them find up-to-date information about diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis. At that time, there was no one to turn to. So, in 2009, they formed Bladder Cancer Canada to fill the void.
Although they were ordinary bladder cancer patients, what they accomplished is extraordinary. Today, BCC is a national, registered charitable non-profit corporation that has helped untold numbers of bladder cancer patients and their caregivers to cope with this disease. Our founders’ vision was to improve patient support – and it remains the cornerstone of BCC’s mission.
