In 2017, 28,600 Canadians were diagnosed with lung cancer and 21,100 died of the disease.
The number of lung cancer deaths exceeds the total number of deaths from colorectal cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.
I’m extremely grateful to the Canadian Cancer Society for funding my research with an Innovation Grant.
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%.
