Cancer in Indiana

Indiana has made great strides over the past several decades in regards to cancer. Although the cancer rates have seen decreases, cancer is still the second leading cause of death in Indiana. Approximately two in five Indiana residents now living will eventually have cancer – suggesting that every Hoosier will have a personal connection to cancer in some way. Thus, the Indiana cancer burden is shared by all Hoosiers. It’s important for all of us to not only understand how we can reduce our own risk, but also to share that knowledge with neighbors, friends, and family.
