The American Cancer Society follows the lead of the National Coalition of Cancer Survivorship, which defines someone as a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis and for the balance of life. And according to our latest reports on cancer survivorship and treatment statistics, produced in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute, there are nearly 14.5 million cancer survivors living in the United States today, and that number is projected to grow significantly by 2024.

This infographic illustrates findings from the Cancer Treatment & Survivorship Facts & Figures 2014-2015, that show the growing number of cancer survivors, the probable reasons for that growth, as well as steps you can take to understand and help support the continuing needs of cancer survivors.
