National Cancer Prevention Month
February 1 - February 28
The five-year survival rate for many cancers, when caught early, is as high as 90%. During National Cancer Prevention Month, we’re focused on helping you understand the screening habits, healthy choices and other lifestyle changes that can lower your risk for several types of cancer.
