This week, CBC North is taking an in-depth look at the disease and its impact on the North.
The series will look at why rates in some aboriginal populations are among the highest in the world. It will give a glimpse at what life is like for patients who have to travel thousands of kilometers away from family and friends for treatment. And the series will tell one woman’s story of how she feels she was diagnosed too late.
CBC North’s Cancer: A Northern Journey will run on television, radio and online throughout the week.
