Non-Hodgkin lymphoma statistics
To provide the most current cancer statistics, statistical methods are used to estimate the number of new cancer cases and deaths until actual data become available.
Incidence and mortality
Incidence is the total number of new cases of cancer. Mortality is the number of deaths due to cancer.
It is estimated that in 2017:
- 8,300 Canadians will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- 2,700 Canadians will die from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- 4,600 men will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 1,500 will die from it.
- 3,700 women will be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 1,200 will die from it.

Even though we are high school students, we were able to raise so much money for the Canadian Cancer Society. It just goes to show what can happen when a small group of people come together for a great cause.
Together we can reduce the burden of cancer
Last year, we only had the resources available to fund 40% of high-priority research projects. Imagine the impact we could have if we were able to fund 100%.
