Every year, approximately 316 Guam residents are diagnosed with cancer. Statistics have shown that they’ve been diagnosed at the later stages of cancer and that cancer accounts for nearly 1 in every 5 deaths. That’s one person dying from cancer every 2 to 3 days here in our island*.
It is time for Guam Cancer Care and our local community to “JOIN THE FIGHT” against cancer and promote a proactive approach to health.
It is time to affect the mortality and morbidity rate for cancer while living a healthier Guam.
It is time to start a movement and coalition on Guam, to put the Fight against Cancer on the island’s agenda.
It is time to “JOIN THE FIGHT”.
As a “JOIN THE FIGHT” supporter and advocate, your organization pledges to:
- Promote, encourage, and allow your employees to get screened for cancer in line with approved cancer screening guidelines.
