Nutrition and Cancer

Each year, millions of people around the world are diagnosed with cancer. But if you’re reading this in the United States, here’s the good news: more than 10 million of those diagnosed in the US become cancer survivors. Many survivors—and the number grows each day—live extended, cancer-free lives. Today, 65 percent of Americans diagnosed with cancer now live more than five years after their diagnosis.

If you’re a west Georgia or east Alabama resident and you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with cancer, here’s more good news: the Roy Richards, Sr. Cancer Center and Tanner Breast Health offer technology and treatment options that are unsurpassed in our area.
