Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Fahad Razak, a General Internist and epidemiologist at Unity Health Toronto, Dr. Alisa Naiman, family physician and the founder and medical director of The Medical Station in Toronto, and Dr. Malcolm Moore, a medical oncologist at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
This week: we start things off by discussing some good news-the survival rate for pancreatic cancer is increasing according to The American Cancer Society. The 5-year survival rate for this type of cancer went up by one per cent and is now at 12 per cent. This is good news considering that this particular type of cancer has a very low survival rate. Libby has been open about her battle with it in the past and about her successful recovery.
