What you need to know about cancer

There are over 100 different diseases that we call “cancer,” making it a complex subject to understand. Yet, reliable and trusted health information is critical to helping people cope with a cancer diagnosis.

To make the right health decisions for ourselves or others, we must be able to obtain, understand and act on health information. The Canadian Cancer Society has partnered with BMO to develop a video series called Cancer Basics. The 21 videos will educate Canadians on topics ranging from understanding cancer to ways to cope with treatment.
