Report: More Cancer Survivors In the U.S. Than Ever Before

WJON NewsUNDATED — There are more cancer survivors in the United States than ever before.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released a report that says, as of 2007, one in every 20 American adults had survived cancer. That’s a 20% increase since 2001.

Roxanne Wilson is the Cancer Community Program Director at the Coborn Cancer Center in St. Cloud.  She says, as more and more people survive cancer, the programs they offer also have to adjust.  She says they have a variety of programs to help not only cancer survivors, but also their friends and families.

The CDC report says about 65% of cancer survivors have lived at least five years since receiving the diagnosis, 40% have lived 10 years or more, and nearly 10% have live 25 years or longer.
