Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. The American Cancer Society estimates more than 600,000 Americans will die of cancer this year alone — that’s about 1,600 individuals per day. A diagnosis not only affects the individual themself but also close family and friends too. If you’ve or somebody you love has been touched by cancer, then you have an idea of what to expect during this emotional and challenging time.
Cancer and its treatment are stressful. In addition to the emotional distress, a diagnosis can also become a substantial financial burden for families and individuals battling cancer. In 2015, the cost of cancer care in the United States averaged $183 billion and projects to increase by 30% by 2030.
Here at McClure Insurance Group, we believe every individual should have the ability to make higher education possible. The Janet Phleger Foundation is on a mission to help families unable to afford higher education by providing scholarships to those individuals whose parent or guardian has battled cancer.
Since opening its doors in 2001, JPF has given more than $104,000 and helped 38 graduates in our community with their college tuition.
There’s a place for everyone in the fight against cancer. Be a part of something special, and learn how YOU can make a difference in your community.
