We spent decades trying to get the number of deaths to go down, so when they finally did there was a lot of celebrating. The word has really gotten out about early detection and it is working. Yes there are still bad outcomes and people who still pass away from this disease. But there is a lot of good living going on out there.
The message that we are trying to get out to everybody is that if you do hear those words, 'I have cancer,' don't ignore it because you don't want to know, go get started. While not every cancer is cured, the quality of life is better now and the response to side effects have been successfully eliminated and reduced.
