There will be an estimated 1.7 million cases of cancer this year, according to the American Cancer Society.
Mimi Crum is already one of them, for the second time.
In 2010, Crum, a retired special education teacher, underwent radiation at Hardin Memorial Hospital in Elizabethtown, for stage zero Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS).
After the radiation was completed, she was scheduled for a check up and a shot of tamoxifen, a preventative drug, every six months for the next five years.
