In 2015, an estimated 1,658,370 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and 589,430 people will die from the disease.
Approximately 39.6 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes.
With these statistics, it is without question that someone you know (or perhaps you personally) has been affected by cancer.
It's time to do something about it. You have the opportunity to make a difference in the fight against cancer by donating to my VeloSano bike ride. 100% of your gift will go directly to cancer research at Cleveland Clinic.
The Cleveland Clinic delivers compassionate, state-of-the-art clinical care, focusing on improving clinical outcomes for patients – and the only way to accomplish that is through continued research.
There has been great strides made in the way Cleveland Clinic prevents, screens, diagnoses and treats cancer – but they're not done yet. And you can help.
