Together, we are stronger.
Healthy body weight
Many Canadians weigh too much – more than half of us are overweight or obese. This puts us at increased risk for breast, colorectal, esophageal, gallbladder, liver, kidney, pancreatic and uterine cancer. Maintaining a healthy body weight is a goal that most people can reach.
Body weight and cancer
Research shows that being overweight or obese increases your risk of cancer. Reduce your risk by getting to and staying at a healthy body weight.
What’s a healthy body weight?
A healthy body weight will be different for everyone, so check with your doctor about what a healthy body weight is for you. Being at a healthy body weight does not mean being skinny like a model, but you might be surprised to learn how much “extra” weight makes you obese or even just overweight from a medical point of view.
It is funny how one of the darkest times in your life can be one of the best times in your life, and it was all because of Daffodil Place.
Volunteer for Daffodil Month
Volunteers are urgently needed in April. When you volunteer just a few hours of your time during Daffodil Month, you help save lives and support people who are living with cancer now.
