On The Future of Colorectal Cancer in Canada

On The Future of Colorectal Cancer in Canada

After being diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 1995, Barry Stein devoted his career to supporting future patients by forming what is now Colorectal Cancer Canada. 

Colorectal cancer can be prevented through screening to identify and remove polyps before they become cancerous. Increased awareness and education – due in part by the efforts of organizations like Colorectal Cancer Canada – has meant that the mortality rate for colorectal cancer has been in decline in recent years. However, it is still the second-leading cause of cancer death in Canadian men, and the third-leading in Canadian women 

Watch the video above to learn more about the importance of being screened for the disease, and what Colorectal Cancer Canada is doing to help Canadians both before and after their cancer diagnosis.
