Most of us know of someone who has been affected by cancer, or you yourself have been affected by cancer. There are approximately 12 million cancer survivors in the United States with nearly 25,000 Coloradans currently diagnosed each year. The American Cancer Society’s estimated number of cancers for 2012 is an estimated 1.8 million. A third of the 600,000 cancer deaths that occurred in 2012 were related to overweight or obesity, physical inactivity, and poor nutritional habits.
