Cancer Awareness

 

According to the American Cancer Society, there are many types of cancer. It’s not just one disease. Cancer can start in the lungs, the breast, the colon, or even in the blood. Cancers are alike in some ways, but they are different in the ways they grow and spread.

There are several DeKalb County and independent run programs and facilities that provide cancer screenings, as well as treatment and after-care services.
