Cancer: You Can Make It Work

Woman with CancerIt's no surprise that cancer is the disease that employees fear most. Approximately 40 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime. And many employees who don't have cancer take care of someone else who does.

The good news is that more than one-third of all cancers are related to lifestyle factors that can be changed, including lack of exercise, poor diet and tobacco use. Early prevention and education also improve your chances of staying cancer-free. Whether you have cancer or want to learn more about your cancer risk, these resources can help you manage cancer in the workplace.
