February is National Cancer Prevention Month

February is National Cancer Prevention Month, and tomorrow (2/4/2022) is World Cancer Day.

Cancer is a broad term. It describes the disease that results when cellular changes cause the uncontrolled growth and division of cells. Some forms of cancer result in visible growths called tumors, whereas others, like leukemias, do not.

Approximately 10 million people worldwide die from cancer each year. It is the second leading cause of death.

There is hope. Millions of lives could be saved each year by implementing strategies for prevention, early detection, and treatment. Targeted therapies are an active area of research and differ from the standard chemo and radiation therapy. They act directly on cancer and offer promising hope for those fighting cancer.

Take action. Hug a cancer survivor or someone currently fighting cancer. They need your love and support. Consider donating to Kids Cancer Fund. We are a non-profit that helps kids fight cancer, and your donation is tax-deductible.
