It’s a word no one wants to hear.  The “C” word; cancer.  More than 1.5 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in America this year and more than 500,000 will die of cancer in 2012.  The survival rate has greatly improved over the last several decades.

Education about the effects of smoking and drinking excessively and the benefits of stopping such habits have certainly contributed to the decline.  Extensive research continues daily to find a cure.

Just as Dr. Jonas Salk found the cure for polio, once one the most feared diseases in the world, researchers are confident they’ll find a cure for cancer.  The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life events seek to raise not only funds but awareness about cancer prevention and early diagnosis.

The 2012 Relay For Life in Wichita Falls is Friday, June 1st thru Saturday, June 2nd at McNiel Junior High Track. Regan Nabors, community manager for the Wichita Falls American Cancer Society branch, joined the ‘Rise and Shine Show’ crew this morning to give you all the details.
