VOLUNTEERS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED IN APRIL
Ovarian cancer 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.
An estimated 2,800 Canadian women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2016. An estimated 1,750 will die from the disease.

Volunteering during Daffodil Month is an incredibly rewarding experience, whether you have been touched by cancer or not.
Support from someone who has ‘been there’
The Canadian Cancer Society’s peer support program is a telephone support service that matches cancer patients and their caregivers with specially trained volunteers.
