According to 2017 Canadian Cancer Society statistics, almost half of all Canadians will develop cancer in their lifetime. Cancer remains the leading cause of death in Canada, responsible for 30.2% of lives lost nation-wide. Advances in the molecular characterization of many cancers have led to a subdivision of these cancers into several molecular sub-types, resulting in a complex collection of diseases. It has become increasingly clear not only that no two patients’ cancer is the same, but even within one person’s disease there is a large amount of heterogeneity.
