More than 16.9 million Americans (8.1 million males and 8.8 million females) with a history of cancer were alive on January 1, 2019; this number is projected to reach more than 22.1 million by January 1, 2030 based on the growth and aging of the population alone. The estimated number of cancer survivors was calculated by using data from SEER-9 registries to estimate the proportion of persons, by age, sex, and race, who were alive on January 1, 2001, and had a diagnosis of cancer during 1975-2000, taking into account loss to follow-up (4).

This includes everyone who’s ever had cancer, from the time of diagnosis for the rest of their life.

  • I’m 15 and I was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma at 5yrs old but doctors say I may have been born with it. It was a tough battle mentally and physically, doctors told my parents I’d never be cancer free. There were always people supporting me and praying for me. I had some amazing people always there for me in the hospital. My dad worked his butt off struggling to pay bills and my mom was ALWAYS beside me in the hospital which was painful for her but she was an amazing mom. The hospital was like a second home for me since I was there all the time, tubes, needles, throwing up, and medicine was life. I saw a lot of doctors, nurses, and therapists for mental and physical issues. One doctor caused me to be in a wheel chair for a while which sucked. VCU was great and had amazing people all the time. It was a long and painful journey but eventually I became cancer free and normally kids get it again but I passed the 5 year trial and are officially cancer free for seven years in November
