Cancer Has A Name

All of us have been effected in some way with the terrible disease called ‘cancer’.

1,500 Americans will die today from this disease. It has to be stopped.

Jane, Annie, Roger and John are all painfully aware of the human cost of losing a family member, and have created the “Cancer Has A Name” campaign to help eliminate this scourge that affects so many families each year.

We have created a "Make A Change", cup piece of art that will be offered for $10. We ask that you fill the cup with your change (we are finding about $30 does it) and then count it with your family, and send a check in using the provided addressed stamped envelope. The donation is to Stand Up 2 Cancer, an national organization dedicated to underwriting the research to find a cure. The require that all the researchers and investigators share their finding, the goal is to beat cancer and "Find the Last Name"

Cancer Facts & Figures 2015

This annual report provides the estimated numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2015, as well as current cancer incidence, mortality, and survival statistics and information on cancer symptoms, risk factors, early detection, and treatment. In 2015, there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases diagnosed and 589,430 cancer deaths in the US.  (Please note: The projected numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2015 should not be compared with previous years to track cancer trends because they are model-based and vary from year to year for reasons other than changes in cancer occurrence. Age-standardized incidence and death rates should be used to measure cancer trends.)
