Cancer Insights

Cancer is oftentimes one the the most frightening words in our language. Educating ourselves against this scourge is our best possible line of defense. Cancer is a chronic disease that is the second leading cause of death in both the United States and the Virgin Islands. The Cancer Facts and Figures from the American Cancer Society states that "cancer accounts for one in every five deaths in the United States, and one in every three Americans alive today will eventually develop cancer." The mortality data in the Virgin Islands mirror national trends, with Breast and Prostate cancers being the most common for female and male deaths respectively due to cancer.
We have all experienced a friend, a loved one, or ourselves, having to wage  battle with cancer. Due to the increasingly high incidence rates of cancer in the Virgin Islands, Continuum Care created a series of newsletters whose information is devoted to the prevention, education, awareness, treatment and care of cancers, featuring contributions and insights offered by St. Croix' own Gwen Skeoch, nationally certified oncology nurse and noted author.  The featured Cancer Insights Articles are provided below.
