Best Defense Against Cancer … A Better Health Care System?

September 18, 2007

Columbus, OH – The American Cancer Society is kicking off a campaign to ensure all Americans are able to receive quality health coverage, by focusing its outreach budget on those who don't have health insurance. Tracy Sabetta with the group's Ohio office says cancer research has led to great improvements in treatment and prevention, but they hardly help people who have no access to healthcare.

"We know that we're really not going to do anything to 'move the needle' in any meaningful way until every American has access to timely, affordable, quality healthcare."

Sabetta says one of the chief benefits of being insured is that people are more likely to have access to vital early detection and treatment.

"We know that, for cancer patients especially, when the diagnosis comes early and treatment can start early, survival rates are much higher."

More than 25,000 Ohioans die of cancer each year. The Cancer Society is aiming for a 50-percent reduction in cancer deaths by 2015.
