Statistics

Cancer Statistics

Have you ever asked yourself what a difference a day makes? After all, what can happen in 24 hours?

3,400 Americans are diagnosed with cancer every 24 hours.
1,500 people lose their battle to cancer every 24 hours.
1,900 people are cured of cancer every 24 hours.

In fact, it is difficult to find anyone who has not felt the effects of cancer either as a victim or as the family member of friend of someone who has battled cancer. You can help. You can make a difference by becoming a sponsor or organizing a team for Relay for Life.
