Cancer prevention tips for everybody

25 September 2018

It's My Life!Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians is expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and yet around half of all cancers can be prevented. It has never been more urgent to take action to reduce your cancer risk.

That’s why the Canadian Cancer Society developed It’s My Life! – an online, interactive and evidence-based tool to educate Canadians about cancer prevention. Thanks to a new partnership with Desjardins, this tool includes more resources to help people reduce their cancer risk. Visitors to the web site answer questions about their lifestyle and the tool gives them tailored cancer prevention information and tips to empower them to make lifestyle changes to lower their risk of cancer.

Desjardins is the Canadian Cancer Society’s new prevention partner and the presenting sponsor of It’s My Life! Desjardins’ mission is to contribute to improving the economic and social well-being of people and communities. Through its many educational initiatives, Desjardins supports their employees, members and clients to help them make sound choices to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
