The Risks of Cancer

In the United States, cancer is the leading cause of death, behind heart disease. The lifetime risk of developing cancer is approximately 1 in 2 for men and 1 in 3 for women. Anyone can be diagnosed with cancer. It can appear anywhere at anytime. Even those who live a healthy lifestyle run the risk of getting cancer. The risk becomes even greater with age. Nearly 77% of all cancers are diagnosed in persons 55+ years of age.

No one likes to think about the possibility of getting cancer. But the risk is very real. How would you and your family pay the cost to combat this disease? Treatment and prevention are expensive. 1 in 5 people diagnosed with cancer, who have health insurance, use all or most of their savings because of the financial strain of dealing with cancer.
