Strides Against Skin Cancer 5K
Each year, there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of other cancers of the breast, prostate, lung, and colon. Over 4 million cases of Basal cell carcinoma and 1 million cases of Squamous cell carcinoma are diagnosed each year. It takes about $4.8 billion for these cancers to be treated. An estimated 87,110 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the U.S. in 2017. Although it accounts for less than 1% of skin cancers, it causes the majority of deaths; one person every 54 minutes. They cost about $3.3 billion annually to treat. Join us in the education, prevention, and treatment of these, and other, skin cancers in the first ever Strides Against Skin Cancer for better outcomes for future patients.
