There are nearly 200,000 Coloradans alive with active cancer or a history of cancer. For individuals recently diagnosed with cancer, 6 of 10 will live five years or longer overall. However, survival varies substantially for different types of cancers. For those diagnosed between 2000 and 2003, 94% of men with prostate cancer survived five years or more, while 89% of women with breast cancer survived at least that long. Only 44% of women with ovarian cancer survived five years or longer.
