February 4 is World Cancer Day [News]

Published On: February 4, 2019

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, 1 in 2 Canadians is expected to develop cancer during their lifetime, and one in four Canadians will die from the disease. Between now and 2030, there is expected to be a dramatic increase in the number of cancers diagnosed in Canada. This is primarily due to the growing and aging population, as the majority of new cancer cases diagnosed in 2017 were among Canadians 50 years of age and older.
