In the Past Six Years, the Number of Cancer Survivors Is Up 20%

According to the latest numbers from the CDC and the National Cancer Institute, the number of cancer survivors is up an OUTSTANDING 20% in the past six years.

Dr. Thomas Frieden from the CDC says, quote, “There’s still a concept that cancer is a death sentence.  But [this shows] for many people with cancer . . . they can live a long and healthy life.”

The number of cancer survivors went from 9.8 million to 11.7 million.

The study found that 65% of people with cancer survived at least five years after their diagnosis . . . 40% at least ten years . . . and almost 10% have lived 25 years or longer.

Most of the credit for the increase in survival rates goes to fewer people smoking, better early detection and cancer screening, and more advanced treatments.
