October is Breast Cancer Awareness

Dads (men and women) October cancer awareness (Major cancer types: Lung, breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer)!

Extremely important to get regular physicals, men… hardest thing to do is informed your love ones I have cancer. The person who has cancer is affected and the ones you told are now brought into your circle. Its good technology has advance, to detect any traits of cancer in you my hat and prayers go out to you . An estimated 1,762,450 cancers will be in diagnosed in 2019, which equals more than 4,800 new cases each day. The lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is 39.3% for men and 37.7% for women, which is a little more than 1 in 3. death rate from cancer in the US has declined steadily over the past 25 years, according to annual statistics reporting from the American Cancer Society. As of 2016, the cancer death rate for men and women combined had fallen 27% from its peak in 1991. This decline translates to about 1.5% per year and more than 2.6 million deaths avoided between 1991 and 2016. The drop in cancer mortality is mostly due to steady reductions in smoking and advances in early detection and treatment. But not all populations are benefitting. Although the racial gap in cancer deaths is slowly narrowing, socioeconomic inequalities are widening. I want to give a special shout out for the women who I served during a luncheon. 20 were survival in 2016. Today 2019, 13 have passed away.
