According to livestrong.com, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. However, improvements in cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment have increased the survival rate for many types of cancer. About 64 percent of all people diagnosed with cancer will be alive 5 years after diagnosis.
Please take a moment of your time to help yourself and others. The links I have included throughout this limerick are all American organizations. If any of my Jordanian readers have information regarding donating or educating oneself to cancer, please let me know and I will include them as well.
