In the fight to prevent cancer we are seeing escalating cases of cancer that require uncountable vast sums of money.

People are losing more than loved ones to pay for cancer care.

Every day more than 1,500 men, women and children die of cancer in the U.S.

The reality is most people in this country will either have cancer or have someone they love with cancer.

Cancer is expensive. Until the government prioritizes cancer prevention we need to assume the trend for escalating cancer rates will continue.
