American Cancer Society: "Finishing the Fight"

Recent studies show that there has been a 20% decline in deaths from cancer since 1991, but that’s just the beginning.  As the American Cancer Society’s new slogan reads, we need to “finish the fight”.  Greg Broy, Associate Director of Communications and Marketing at the American Cancer Society, discusses risk factors that can contribute to any form of cancer like age, diet, smoking, and genetics, dispels some myths surrounding cancer and things like cell phones, underwire bras, etc., and reveals the 24 hour cancer support hotline for people who have been recently diagnosed, as well as family members.  Veronica Gliatti, a breast cancer survivor, also shares the amazing story of her diagnosis, as well as the details of the CPS-3 cancer study, now beginning, which tracks environmental risk factors for cancer over the long term.  For the cancer hotline, call 1-800-227-2345, and for more on the study, visit CPS3Nashville.org.
