Despite being 90% preventable, over 80,000 cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in Canada each year. Of these, more than 5,000 are melanoma, the mostly deadly form of skin cancer. With incidences of this disease on the rise, awareness, education, and patient support are more crucial than ever.
This one-evening event in Toronto will provide up-to-the-minute information on melanoma statistics in Canada, a recap of sun safety and skin cancer prevention methods and initiatives with Kathy Barnard, the Save Your Skin team, and local stakeholders including physicians, patients, supporters and partners.
