The Breast Blog: The Numbers Game

Headlines on the Health Section of the Globe and Mail included the following statistics.

145,500

This many Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer this year.

(that's more than the population of my city.)

68,300

This many Canadians will die of cancer this year.

(that's over half the population of my city.)

1 in 4

This many of us will get cancer in our lifetime.

420,000

This many more lives could be saved over 30 years with a national cancer plan.

My question boils down to your level. What are you....yes you....doing to contribute to these numbers? Are you helping them go up? Or are you helping them come down?
