Last year, it was estimated that 25,700 Canadian women were diagnosed with breast cancer, this translates to about 70 women being diagnosed each day. One in nine Canadian women will be diagnosed with this disease in her lifetime.
The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life of people living with cancer.
Over the past 30 years, CCS has invested over $100 million in breast cancer research. These research investments combined with early detection, increased screening rates and better treatment therapies for breast cancer have resulted in a 44% decrease in the breast cancer death rate since the late 1980’s. More work needs to be done because breast cancer is still the most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second-leading cause of death among women in Canada. Money raised through this partnership will fund breast cancer research, education and awareness activities. For more information, please visit cancer.ca/breastcancer.
