    May 17, 2018

    Perhaps no other word strikes fear in our hearts as much as the word cancer. The disease claims the lives of more than half a million Americans each year. It is the second-leading cause of death, behind heart disease.

    But cancer doesn’t have to be the death sentence we sometimes think it is. In fact, most cancers can be successfully treated, and it often can be prevented.

    There are more than 100 kinds of cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the most common cancers among women are breast cancer, lung cancer and colorectal cancer. Among men, the three most common cancers are prostate cancer, lung cancer and colorectal cancer.
