Change the future of cancer in Atlantic Canada

With an estimated 16,000 Atlantic Canadians diagnosed with cancer every year, our region has the highest incidence of cancer per 100,000 in the country. We’re seeing advances in detecting and treating all types of diseases, but cancer continues to be a significant health challenge for the people in Atlantic Canada.
