It is National Young Adult Cancer Awareness Week - Who Cares? You Should.

Every time I see these statistics I am blown away. Is this really the state of cancer care today? Here they are:
  1. 70,000 young adults (15-39) are diagnosed with cancer each year.
  2. Cancer is the leading disease killer among 20-39 year olds.
  3. Survival rates for young adults have not increased since 1975.
What can you do to help?
We can achieve more together than alone. Let's join forces and make those shocking statistics history! Anyone have other ideas, information or suggestions on how someone can help?
