Test Yourself: Cancer Facts

4.13.2010
This weekend, Relay for Life will be held on the Upper Quad to benefit cancer research. Already, JHU participants have raised almost $50,000! According to their website, "Relay is a time to remember those lost to cancer and a time to celebrate those who have survived. Relay brings together people who have shared the same experience so that they may comfort and console one another. Relay raises cancer awareness and shows we are united in one purpose to fight it. Relay gives you the power to help accelerate the Society's progress toward a future where cancer doesn't take the lives of our friends and family". Prevention and early detection are key when it comes to cancer. It's also important to be knowledgeable of your personal risks. Check into your own family history to see if cancer runs in your family tree. Knowledge is power. Test your cancer IQ.
