Are Winning the War on Cancer?
We continually hear that we are winning the war on cancer, yet 25% of all deaths in the US each year are directly cancer-related. The National Cancer Institute recently released data that prostate cancer deaths in 2010 would increase by 17% over 2009, with 32,050 men project to die from prostate cancer by the end of 2010.
A quick review of statistical data reveal that over 1.2 million men have died from prostate cancer since President Richard M. Nixon declared the “War on Cancer” in 1971.
Sturgis Memorial to those Fallen to Prostate Cancer
On August 8th, 2010, the Prostate Cancer Awareness Project dedicated a brick in the walkway at Sturgis in the memory of the men who succumbed to prostate cancer.
You can find the brick in Section 17, row 23, at 1019 Main Street, Sturgis, South Dakota.
