There is support for the 12,000 Canadians who will be diagnosed with bladder cancer this year. According to the Canadian Cancer Society and the Government Canada’s Cancer Specific Stats for 2020, bladder cancer is still
the 5th most common type of cancer in Canada with just over 12,000 new incidences reported last year.
Every year, Canadians come together across the country and raise approximately $600,000 for Bladder Cancer Canada via it annual awareness walk campaign. For the past two years, this has been a virtual walk because of COVID-19.
Now, more than ever, the organization wants bladder cancer patients to know there is support available to them as they navigate their diagnosis during these uncertain times.
Presented by Ferring Canada, this year’s walk will take place during the weekend of September 25th and 26th. On October 5, BCC will host an online wrap-up event to highlight and celebrate the hundreds of walkers, volunteers, physicians and researchers across Canada who help the organization in their mission to increase
awareness of bladder cancer, support patients and fund research.
