National Cancer Research Month

Share this post

The American Association for Cancer Research has designated May as National Cancer Research Month. The month is a time to highlight the importance of lifesaving research to the millions of people around the world affected by cancer. Due to advances in cancer research, more than 16.9 million people in the United States, and millions more worldwide, are cancer survivors. Despite the medical advances that have been made in cancer research, the cure for cancer is still being widely researched.

During the month of May, the American Association for Cancer Research partners with advocacy groups, cancer centers, research institutes, and other organizations to raise awareness of cancer research happening across the country. Cancer has a major impact on society in the United States and across the world. Continued research for cancer, as well as awareness of the types of treatment out there, is important for public health.
