But the fact is, the disease places a greater burden on some minority groups in the United States than on others for a variety of reasons, which in some cases are preventable.
At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, one of our major goals is to boost awareness of ways to prevent cancer and detect the disease at its earliest stages, when treatments are most successful. We're also working to find more effective new treatment options with fewer side effects.
Together, we hope to help all members of our communities to lead healthier lives.
