According the the World Health Organization fact sheet as of February 2011, cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide and accounted for 7.6 million deaths (around 13% of all deaths) in 2008.

According to Cancer Statistics, 2010, published in the CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, on July 7, 2010, it is estimated that approximately 569,490 Americans will die from cancer, which means that greater than 1500 deaths per day.

Canadian Cancer Statistics 2007 reports that an estimated 39 per cent of Canadian females and 44 per cent of males will develop cancer during their lifetimes; and an estimated 24 per cent of women and 28 per cent of men will die from cancer, or approximately one out of every four Canadians will die from cancer.

According to a study published in the Annals of Oncology (the official journal of the European Society for Medical Oncology) on February 9, 2011, researches predict that there will be nearly 1.3 million deaths from cancer in Europe in 2011. The estimates, which have been reached after researchers using for the first time in Europe a new mathematical model for predicting cancer mortality, show a fall in overall cancer death rates for both men and women when compared to 2007.

It is a known fact that cancer kills. Everyday, someone dies from some form of cancer: a member of our family, one of friends, one of people we know, and many of people we don't know or we've never even heard of. And in 2010, there were famous people who had succumbed to cancer, like Elizabeth Edwards, the estranged wife of former Democratic presidential nominee John Edwards. She died on December 7, 2010, after a long battle with breast cancer at age 61.


City TV's Mark Dailey - We will truly miss you

Mark Dailey - a most notable of cancer deaths in Toronto 2010

Here in Toronto, we lost our beloved Mark Dailey. Mark was one of the most recognizable, trusted, and revered newsmen in Toronto. Mark's awesome deep baritone voice earned him the famous nickname "The Voice" of Citytv and CityNews.

After being diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2004, Dailey went on to become a brave and vocal advocate for men's health, raising awareness and money through his unyielding efforts.

In September, 2010, Dailey announced on air that he was suffering from kidney cancer. A few short months later, the cancer spread to his lungs. On December 6, 2010, Mark died from prostate and kidney cancer. He was 57.

Cancer does not discriminate - Cancer Deaths

In putting together this list of famous and notable cancer deaths in 2010, I was overwhelmed by the harsh reality of the fact that cancer does not discriminate between the young and elderly, although cancer deaths are more prevalent among the elderly; between races, between genders, between the rich and poor. In putting together this list, I relied heavily on Wikipedia and checked the references. It is difficult to have a comprehensive list as some cause of deaths are not available. So I apologize in advance, if I had omitted some famous and notable cancer deaths, and if some information are erroneous. Internet is not perfect after all. I also included a brief information and picture (where available) of each cancer victim to help us remember the way they were.


So without further ado, here is a list of famous and notable people who died from cancer in 2010.

I know it took a lot of work to put this together. Cancer is a devastting disease. I lost my 18 year old nephew on Feb. 28, 2011 to this killer. We need cures, we need cures.

WOW !! took some time to read this one..but it certainly opens your eyes to the massive effect Cancer has on all our lives .

My first real brush with Cancer was when my dad died,although looking back my grandparents all died from it in one form or another...I have lost at least 15 friends in the past 40 years and family too ,with Cancer one just recently..It is certainly a dreadful disease and I like many pray for the discovery of a cure soon.

Thanks for an informative Hub Rosie X

Ya know this hub makes me realize the sadness of the loss from the families whom have lost such great souls. We each have a birth day and a death date: like my mother 1938-1972

But it's what we DO in Between those dashes that COUNT. Wonderful hub Rosie2010.
