FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 4, 2016
Statement from Ontario PC Health Critic Jeff Yurek on World Cancer Day:
“Today on World Cancer Day 2016, we draw attention to the disease that does not discriminate. A disease that affects all ages and kills more that 8 million people worldwide each year. This day reminds us to never end the fight against cancer.
This year’s theme, We Can, I Can, highlights how we can do our part to reduce the burden of cancer. I encourage everyone to take action to help prevent and fight cancer.
I want to commend all the organizations, researchers, volunteers and health care professionals who work tirelessly every day in the fight against cancer. They raise awareness and funds while providing support and treatment to those suffering from cancer. Together we can make a difference and defeat cancer.”
