Printer-friendly version

Cancer is a leading cause of death around the world. The World Health Organization estimates that 84 million people will die from cancer between 2005 and 2015. Nearly 70 percent of all new cases are expected to occur in low and middle-income countries, where the resources available for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer are often limited or nonexistent. Help raise cancer awareness and encourages continued endeavors to prevent, treat, and cure cancer.
