um, aims to increase the proportion of cancer survivors who are living five years or longer after diagnosis to 70 percent. NCI data shows that the five-year survival rate for all types of cancer was 65.3 percent for the time period 1996-2004. In comparison, the five-year survival rate was 59 percent for the time period 1989-95, according to Healthy People 2010.
