Data & Statistics

Join the Journey is committed to raising awareness about cancer and supporting individuals with all types of cancer in your community. Statistics reveal that cancer affects a significant portion of the population, with various types posing a threat to both men and women. For instance, one in eight women and one in nine men will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. According to the American Cancer Society's data for 2023, an estimated 1.9 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed, affecting both genders. Furthermore, approximately 3.8 million cancer survivors are currently living in the US, underscoring the importance of ongoing support and awareness initiatives. It's vital to recognize that cancer remains a formidable foe, with an estimated 609,640 individuals projected to succumb to the disease in 2023 in the United States alone.

The battle against cancer necessitates collective action and unwavering support. Millions grapple with its impact, fostering awareness about our fight against this formidable foe. By illuminating the prevalence of cancer and its far-reaching consequences, we empower individuals to take charge of their health. Through advocacy and compassionate support, we can cultivate a culture of resilience and hope in our shared journey towards a cancer-free future.
