Millions vs. billions
The big day is almost here. All eyes are on Las Vegas. Every year boxing contributes over $100 million to Nevada’s economy. A study conducted by Oxford Economics reports the gaming industry in Nevada was responsible for almost $7.9 billion in taxes. The gap between these figures and skin cancer research funding is embarrassing. The American Cancer Society dedicates millions of dollars each year to preventing and treating skin cancer, the most common type of cancer in the United States.
Where’s a referee when you need one?
The American Cancer Society has only $13.8 million in grant funding committed to skin cancer research. An estimated 73,870 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with melanoma and 10,000 will die from it in 2015.
