In 2019, more than 1.7 million people will be
diagnosed with cancer in the United States, which translates to more than 4,800
new cases a day. Cancer is not a single disease but a group of related
diseases. In addition to the physical problems and emotional
distress caused by cancer, the high costs of care are also a burden to patients,
their families, and the public. Many things in our
genes, our lifestyle, and the environment around us may increase or decrease
our risk of getting cancer.
Scientists are studying many different ways to help prevent cancer.
OMC’s Cancer Treatment Center was designed with patients' comfort
and safety in mind and is equipped to provide high-quality, compassionate

same leading-edge cancer treatment they can receive in progressive cancer
