The State Health Department has released its cancer action plan to help Missouri families in their efforts to prevent the spread of the disease. Sue Heisler, Program Manager of Comprehensive Cancer Control at the Department, says three out of four Missouri families are affected by cancer, with lung cancer the most prevailant form of the disease. The action plan aims to decrease the number of new cases in Missouri, increase survivorship of cancer patients, and better inform everyone about the reality of cancer. To that end, the plan calls on Missourians to adopt healthy lifestyles and to have their doctors test for the various forms of cancer.
