April is National Cancer Control month and is a time to bring awareness to the disease that, according to the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta, claims more than 8 million victims worldwide every year. 1.6 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2014 alone, based on statistics from the American Cancer Society.
So what can you do to show your support and take a stand against this deadly disease? This month, control cancer and lower your risk by making a pledge to exercise more regularly, eat healthier, lose weight, reduce your alcohol intake, get any recommended screening tests from your doctor or quit smoking for good.
You can share your pledge with friends and loved ones by starting conversations in person or through social media, while encouraging them to find ways that they can be a part of the movement to #ControlCancer.
In addition to controlling cancer and lowering your risk, this is a great time to show support for the kind of research and cutting edge technology that detects cancer, often aiding in improved outcomes for patients whose lives have been so deeply impacted.
