Cancer has had a dramatic impact on my family over the generations.  My mother dies 2 ½ years ago from lung cancer and 4 other members have had different kinds of cancer. 

Prevention is critical for prevention!

If it is about skin cancer, use sunscreen, have regular screenings done by a trusted person in your life (family member, doctor or nurse), and recognize our risks.  http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/con-article/664763/skin%20cancer/melanoma_a_big_threat_to_older_men.htm .

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer in the U.S. . Screening for lung cancer with CT scans is controversial  as to the risk vs. the benefits.  http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/con-article/664926/lung%20cancer/screening_for_lung_cancer_might_benefit_those_at_highest_risk.htm .

Colon cancer  is preventable if the precancerous polyps can be found and removed.  This is often done through colonoscopies (I had one done two years ago).  Many people have a large fear of the procedure and this phobia keeps them from utilizing regular screenings.  There are some potential screening techniques that are less invasive.  The technique uses “virtual” techniques (The Wall Street Journal, May 12, 2012).  Whether the technique is used widespread, the testing must continue to curb the upswing of the number of deaths from colon cancer. http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/con-article/664926/lung%20cancer/screening_for_lung_cancer_might_benefit_those_at_highest_risk.htm .

My wish for the future of my children is that people stop dying of cancer.  This is critical, especially in my family.  The first step is in prevention, and knowledge about risks  and opportunities for screenings.
