Some great news from the medical community regarding the number of people who are surviving cancer. It's going up:
The survivor count includes anyone who had a cancer diagnosis, including people who had been successfully treated as well as those still getting treated or who may be dying from the disease. About 65 percent had survived for at least five years, and 40 percent for 10 years or more.As one who can (luckily) count themselves among the ranks of cancer survivors (and who has had members of family and friends not be so fortunate), it's nice to see that this survival thing is becoming a trend. Let's hope it continues!
