Local News: The African Caribbean Cancer Forum Black Habits Articles Educating our Communities in the fight against Cancer.



Our Cancer Forum is on again. Almost every Canadian has some sort of experience with cancer. Whether through a personal struggle, or through witnessing the battle of a friend or family member, each of knows that this dreadful disease does not discriminate.

But we also know there is hope. Cancer can be beaten if we work together. As advances are made in treatments and technologies, and awareness grows by leaps and bounds, we are getting closer and closer to winning the fight against this deadly foe. But to win this fight, we need to keep on pressing towards the goal.

That’s why we invite you to join us to help raise awareness by participating in the Third Annual African Caribbean Cancer Forum on Saturday April 21, 2007, at North York Civic Center, 5100 Yonge Street, Toronto. This year’s Forum, supported by the Canadian Cancer Society, The Olive Branch of Hope and M2M, will feature cancer professionals from Princess Margaret Hospital and Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Center, and includes four workshops; breast, colon, lung and prostate cancers.

Driven by a group of concerned citizens and cancer survivors, the Forum’s objective is to make a difference in the way Caribbean and African communities respond to Cancer by raising awareness about what can be done to proactively combat the disease. As Cancer’s growth in these communities continues to outpace its occurrence in other demographies, it becomes crucial that we heed the call to action.
