Every minute one American will die from cancer. That is one every 60 seconds. 1,500 Americans every day die from cancer. That is CRAZY. I don't know one person who has not been affected by cancer in one why or another. Right now I have a very strong, and AMAZING friend who is battling Stage IV breast cancer. My aunt is a cancer survivor. Who do you know who has been affected by cancer?
What can you do? Stand Up to Cancer.
