DOES WHERE YOU LIVE AFFECT YOUR CHANCES OF BEATING CANCER?

MONTREAL, Aug. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Yes! Apparently only if you live in the right province. Check out the September issue of Reader's Digest magazine (on newsstands now) where seasoned medical writer Claudia Cornwall explores the concept of a  "postal-code lottery" whereby what cancer drug you have access to greatly depends on where you live in Canada. 

In her article Map of Shame (Pg 58), Cornwall uncovers a lack of standardization across the country and introduces readers to the victims of the country's patchwork cancer-care system. Learn more about how your province ranks and where Canada falls on the list of developed countries as it relates to their public spending on pharmaceuticals, all in this month's issue of Reader's Digest magazine or at www.readersdigest.ca/cancercare.
