Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Car Nation Canada is a proud supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society. A $25.00 contribution will be made to the Canadian Cancer Society in support of breast cancer from each car sold to help meet our minimum contribution of $5,000. The campaign to support this drive is on until November 15, 2017 .It's easy, when you visit one of our stores, and buy a car we'll make a donation from that sale to the Wear it Pink Campaign.
Breast cancer statistics
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian women.
• In 2017, it is estimated that 26,300 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada and sadly 5,000 women will die from the disease.
• It is estimated that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime and 1 in 31 will die from breast cancer.
• More than 80% of breast cancers occur in women who are 50 and over.
• Early detection and increased screening rates combined with better treatment therapies for breast cancer has resulted in a 44% decrease in the breast cancer death rate since the late 1980's. Breast cancer is still the most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death among women in Canada. It is for these reasons, that we are committed to supporting breast cancer research, education and awareness.
