World Cancer Day

Thursday, February 4, 2016 is World Cancer Day, a global event to educate as many people as possible about the cancer burden, and what can be done to save lives from the disease.  For the 6th consecutive year, the top of the Empire State Building will be lit in blue and orange lights to raise awareness of the global fight against cancer.  This year, and through 2018, the theme of World Cancer Day is "We can. I can." to explore how everyone - together and individually can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.  

What can you do to help?  Write a supportive WCD message on your hand using the "We can. I can." theme, take a picture of your hand featuring the message, and share the picture on your social media accounts using the hashtags #WorldCancerDay and #WeCanICan.  Your picture could end up on the Wall of Support at worldcancerday.org!

January is Cervical Health Awareness Month

In the 1940s, when the Pap Smear was first introduced, cervical cancer was the number one killer of women. The Pap test, now a standard cancer screening test for all women, has greatly reduced the death rate for cervical cancer patients worldwide.  Another way to prevent cervical cancer is to get vaccinated against human papilloma virus (HPV), which causes most cases of cervical cancer.

All women should begin cervical cancer screening at age 21. Women between the ages of 21 and 29 should have a Pap test every 3 years. They should not be tested for HPV unless it is needed after an abnormal Pap test result. Women between the ages of 30 and 65 should have both a Pap test and an HPV test every 5 years. This is the preferred approach, but it is also OK to have a Pap test alone every 3 years.

ACS-funded research helped lead to the development of the Pap test, and ACS help lead a crusade to educate the public about it.

In The News: Cancer death rate continues steady drop; down 23% in 21 years

Steady reductions in smoking combined with advances in cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment have resulted in a 23% drop in the cancer death rate since its peak in 1991 to 2012, the most recent year for which data is available.  That translates to more than 1.7 million deaths averted during that time.

We are still looking for dedicated Relayers to join our planning committee!  

 We are all busy. We have jobs, we have family commitments, and we have activities every day. Taking on something additional may seem daunting. But we have tried to make participating on the committee more accessible for you. We have broken down many of the chair positions in to smaller tasks and areas of responsibility. If you have a small chunk of time you can spare, we will find a spot for you! If you have a bit more time, we will find a spot for you! And, if you have a passion for and are willing to make an investment in joining us to take on a bigger piece of bringing the fight to cancer…we will gladly find a spot for you, too!  Contact Chelsea at chelsea.katzeman@cancer.org or 244-5554 for more info
