War On Cancer

  • If you are 85 or younger, cancer is the leading cause of death in this country.
  • One out of every two men and one out of every three women will face a cancer diagnosis at some point in their life.
  • Everyday, 1500 Americans are dying from this disease, which not only takes your life prematurely, but oftentimes seems to have to humiliate you in the process.
  • Deaths from cancer are as if one of the twin towers is falling every single day, 365 days a year.
  • If you factor in inflation, the amount of money going to the National Cancer Institute to fight this disease has been reduced two years in a row.
  • Only one out of every 10 cancer grant applications is funded.
  • The number of post-doctorate fellows doing cancer research has been reduced and the budget for clinical trials has been reduced anywhere from 5-8%.
  • If you are between the ages of 30 and 70 and you find a lump or you see your doctor because you are not feeling well and they send you for additional tests, if you are honest with yourself, when you close your eyes that night, you are far more afraid of being diagnosed with cancer than you are of being a victim of a terrorist attack.
  • Cancer is an enemy that touches all of us, whether directly or indirectly and an enemy that this year will kill 600,000 of our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and in far too many cases, such as my own, our children.
  • The time has come to focus on the real war on terror…the war on cancer and each and every one of us can be a soldier in that effort.
