Cancer in the workplace

A 2023 study published in BMJ Oncology revealed a 79.1% global increase (from 1990-2019) of early onset (ages 14-49) cancer diagnoses.1

50% of workers are afraid to disclose their cancer diagnosis for fear of stigma or losing their job.2

92% of cancer patients feel the support they receive from the workplace, positively affects their health.2

This puts employers in a powerful position to affect positive change.
