While the population of the United States continues to age, fueled in large part by medical advances and Baby Boomers, the number of physicians who specialize in treating older patients is on the decline. At the same time, the risk and incidence of cancer increases with age, with approximately 60 percent of all cancers occurring in people over 65.
Everything we do at City of Hope has one purpose: To make cancer a thing of the past. Now more than ever, we have reason to believe that goal is in sight. As we mark International World Cancer Day, City of Hope enthusiastically supports this year's theme: We Can. I Can.
As an editor for more than 20 years, Erin Michaela Sweeney was adept at helping people find the right words to express themselves. But after five rounds of chemotherapy, she found herself using the imprecise word “thingy” in sentences to refer to objects whose name she couldn’t remember.
Stat, Myc, Myb, Fos, Ras, and Fox: Those bland monosyllables, unfamiliar to most of us, command the respect and fear of oncologists and cancer researchers worldwide. Why? Because they name proteins that drive uncontrollable cell division, metastasis, and/or drug resistance in numerous cancers.
As World Cancer Day puts a global spotlight on this challenging disease on Feb. 4, the event’s theme – “We can. I can.” – reminds us the fight begins on a personal level. Each person can make a lifestyle change to have a better shot against cancer, such as becoming more active, losing weight, or quitting smoking.
