15.5 million. That’s the number of cancer survivors currently living in the U.S.—a million more than just one year ago. It’s good news for sure. But this booming demographic adds an urgency to our mission like nothing else: More people than ever need the secure crossing back to vibrancy, strength, confidence and hope that our approach to life after cancer offers. Our community outreach programs help us communicate the mindset and resources that exist to help them achieve precisely this.
