The wonderful people at Huntsman Cancer Institute, and the generous benefactors who make their work possible deserve a lot of credit for the improved outcomes and detection rates.

THANK YOU!

'People have a 20 percent less chance of dying of cancer than they did in 1991, as rates have been "continuously declining for the past two decades," according to the organization's publication "Cancer Statistics, 2014," which was released Tuesday.'

This is great.

Truly, zero sarcasm intended. This is fantastic news. Well done!

Now…

one agonizing problem in our great country is misplaced priorities.

If we gave funding to cancer research that we gave 1/10th of the male pattern balding or the defense budget, we might have cured cancer decades ago.

Good for them, Is it because of less people getting cancer. 70 years after the atomic blasts and fall out across the country. That stuff might be starting to cool off.
