Cancer touches almost everyone. Nearly 2 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer each year. The good news is that cancer prevention and early detection can save lives. Heather Mackey, Senior Director of Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Prevent Cancer Foundation, discusses the Foundation and steps they are taking in cancer prevention.
Routine cancer screening can detect cancer early (even if you have no signs or symptoms). When cancer is detected early, it increases your chance of survival. You may also require less extensive treatment or have more treatment options.
It's time to check your health and give yourself—and your loved ones—better outcomes. Get your routine cancer screenings scheduled today.
