Cancer is a significant and growing issue for employers:

  • 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime
  • 36% of people diagnosed with cancer are of working age
  • 50% of employees are afraid to reveal their cancer to their employers
  • 90% of people caring for someone with cancer are also juggling a job
