The Canadian Cancer Society has found that 43% of Canadian women and 45% of Canadian men will develop cancer during their lifetime, with the most common diagnosis being breast cancer for women, and prostate cancer in men.
However, the good news is about 4 in 10 cancer cases can be prevented through healthy habits and lifestyle.
Today on #WorldCancerDay, IQMH would like to encourage everyone to remain vigilant and take actionable steps for our health. View the Canadian Cancer Society’s Monthly Tips to Reduce Your Risk of Cancer to learn how to make positive changes for a healthier you.
We would like to recognize and thank the entire health care community who actively work hand-in-hand to save lives and support members of our community that are dealing with cancer to take control, and live fulfilling lives.
