CANCER TURNING A NEW LEAF

Thanks to generous donations, huge research advancements have taken place in the past 10 years and survival rates are better than ever. Overall, Cancer survival rates have jumped from 43% in 1979, to 62% in 2007. Five year survival rates are highest for thyroid (98%), testicular (96%), prostate (95%), melanoma (93%), breast (88%), and Hodgkin's (88%). Roughly 1 in 4 Women Will Develop Breast Cancer in Her Lifetime. Over 166,000 estimated Cases of Cancer will Arise in 2008 and Nearly 74,000 of These People Will Die. Cancer Does Not Discriminate Based on Age. 30% of New Cancer Cases and 18% of Deaths Will Occur in People As Young as 20. Sadly, Cancer Has Touched The Lives Of Almost All Canadians, Directly or Indirectly. Despite having successful treatments, we need to find safer drugs with fewer side effects.
