The American Cancer Society is dedicated to creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays. In 2011, more than 107,200 New Yorkers and 29,000 NJ residents were expected to be diagnosed with cancer. More than 34,400 people in New York and 16,400 in NJ were expected to die of the disease. Our comprehensive cancer control strategy of research, education, advocacy, and patient services is working. Since 1991, cancer incidence and death rates have been steadily declining. Since that time, nearly 700,000 lives have been saved. Put another way, we are celebrating 350 more birthdays a day. With the right policies and resources in place, we know we can do much more.
