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.
With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, now more than ever, Canadians need to take action to reduce their cancer risk.
We are excited to welcome Desjardins as our prevention partner and presenting sponsor of the It’s My Life! online tool.
It’s My Life! is an interactive, evidence-based tool created by CCS to educate Canadians about cancer prevention. The tool also helps to empower Canadians to take action to reduce their cancer risk. Visitors to the site answer questions about their lifestyle and the tool gives them tailored cancer prevention information and tips.
Together, let's stop cancer before it starts!
Great progress has been made
Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
