When it comes to cancer research, Canadians want to do more. A national survey released today in advance of World Cancer Day shows that more than half of Canadians 35 to 69 years of age feel cancer should be a top priority for health research.

BC Generations Project participants are getting younger, thanks to new eligibility criteria. Now, any British Columbian aged 35-69 can join the largest cancer prevention research project in BC history. Previously, the age range for recruitment to the Project was 40-69.
