Myth : I can’t do anything about cancer.

Question: Is cancer always fatal?

Answer: Cancer is not always fatal.

Is cancer always fatal? No it’s not. People still believe it is fatal, but the rates of survival of all cancer patients, is 63% today compared to the 1940s when the survival rate was 25%. So more than half of the patients are now surviving.  I like to compare this to a half full, half empty glass. Survival was only half guaranteed years ago, but today we see much higher rates of survival. In some cancers there is even an 80-97% survival rate, and in many cases people are healed. Cancer is often a chronic disease, that people live with. So there is a lot of hope.
