The Scourge of Cancer

This year (2011), about 571,950 Americans are expected to die of cancer – that’s more than 1,600 people a day. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease. Cancer accounts for nearly 1 out of every 4 deaths in the United States. Cancer costs billions of dollars. It also costs us the people we love. Reducing barriers to cancer care is critical in the fight to eliminate suffering and death due to cancer. Contact your American Cancer Society any time, day or night, for cancer information and support.

What is cancer prevalence?

Cancer prevalence is defined as the total number of people living with cancer at any point in time. It includes people diagnosed with cancer in the past as well those who were recently diagnosed.

*The Concept of PTGW
This is how PTGW works at the individual level.
Many people would like to support a cause but may not have money to donate.  There is an  indirect yet extremely effective method I call: Promote The General Welfare ("PTGW"). I propose people volunteer service for others in their circle-of-influence.  Those people compensate for benefit received by donating to a cause named by the volunteer. This can be summed up: "I do for you.  You donate to a cause."

When individually aggregated or applied to groups such as, political parties, scientific  associations, student unions, humanitarian causes, etc., it is a significant wealth building method which simultaneously includes community service (a win), increases an  individual's GDP (a win),  increases the GDP of the nation (a win), and provides funding for great societal causes (a win).  It starts with one person helping another (i.e. community service).  As this idea spreads the corpus of donors expands considerably.

Reports below relate to current volunteering and community service in America.
