Cancer survivors old and young were celebrated last week at an annual event hosted by the University of Louisville and KentuckyOne Health. The event is held prior to before the Kentucky Derby Pegasus Parade.
The cancer death rate in Kentucky has gone down by more than a third “at least in part because of the work we’re doing,” said Dr. Don Miller, James Graham Brown Cancer Center Director.
Dr. Jason Chesney from the JGBCC predicts we’ll see a 25-percent reduction in cancer-related deaths in the next 5 years.
“I want the Brown Cancer Center and University of Louisville to lead that effort,” he said.
