By the numbers
90% of the nation's $3.5 trillion in annual healthcare expenditures are for people with chronic and mental health conditions.
Five chronic diseases – including physical inactivity and obesity –cost US employers $36.4 billion a year because of employees missing days of work.
In 2019, there were an estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,880 cancer deaths in the United States alone.
INDEAL Cares understands that in order to ensure individuals can live their best lives in health, we must support important research programs that focus on some of the most debilitating and crippling diseases of our time, including organizations like City of Hope.
City of Hope is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, making it a national leader in advancing research and treatment protocols.
