Last year more than 27,000 British Columbians were diagnosed with cancer. In 15 years, that number will increase to over 40,000. 

Cancer will impact every family as the ‘1 in 2 Canadians are now expected to face cancer in their lifetime’ statistic will ring true. This is a result of a growing and aging population. 

BC Cancer has among the best outcomes in the world, with the province continually preparing for the now and the next decade to support families yet to face cancer – the most difficult time in their lives.  

The BC Cancer Foundation has used some of our recent data and created an infographic that highlights how BC Cancer is making a difference in the fight against cancer. We’ll be sharing the infographic below on our social media channels over the next few days and we encourage you to share it with your networks to help spread the word. Find us on Twitter at @BCCancer and @BCCancerFdn.

Together with support of donors from communities across the province BC CAN continue to change the outcome for people with cancer.
