As Kentuckians, we are proud of our Commonwealth for so many things. However, one scary thing that we are ranked #1 in is the leading state in the US for CANCER. That is something that we should ALL be concerned about.
It is important that we work together as a community and state to be sure that we are aware of the causes of cancer, signs/symptoms, and appropriate ages for screenings and tests available for early detection. Be sure to schedule yearly physicals and find a doctor that you trust to be able to report symptoms to if needed. We ALL need to be aware of our bodies and health. Cancer does not know an age, race, or demographic.
