What’s YOUR risk?

Did you know that research shows that approximately half of all cancers can be prevented?  The Canadian Cancer Society is dedicated to raising awareness about cancer prevention.  During my PULSE assignment, I am working with the Society’s National Health Policy/Cancer Control team which maintains up-to-date knowledge about research evidence with a focus on cancer prevention and early detection.  The goal is to reduce cancer incidence rates for Canadians — prevention being a priority. 

Happy Birthday to the Canadian Cancer Society’s interactive tool: itsmylife.cancer.ca which turns 2 years old this September.  Do you know your risks and what you can do to “Deter, Defeat and Defy” cancer?  Visit itsmylife.cancer.ca and learn how you can stop cancer before it starts.

Learning SO much and feeling privileged to be a part of this amazing organization!  Cancer.ca
