#WorldCancerDay - It is Not Beyond Us
The 2015 World Cancer Day campaign is focusing on four key areas:
- Choosing healthy lives
- Delivering early detection
- Achieving treatment for all
- Maximizing quality of life
Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States. But survival rates are improving for many types of cancer, thanks to improvements in cancer screening and cancer treatment.
