Tulsa Disability Attorney: Yesterday Marked National Cancer Survivors Day

Yesterday marked National Cancer Survivors Day, a celebration of those who have survived or are living through cancer diagnoses worldwide. According to the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, Inc., there are more than 14 million cancer survivors in America.

“[National Cancer Survivors Day] is a day for everyone, whether you’re a cancer survivor, a family member, friend, or medical professional,” the foundation said in a press release. “This day provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s nearly 14 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way.”

According to the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the cancer survivor population in American is expected to rise to 18 million by the year 2022. Researchers have said that they believe this increase will be due to an aging of the population.

The AACR says that women with breast cancer account for 22 percent of current survivors, while men with prostate cancer make up 20 percent. People with lung cancer, the second most common cancer, only represent 3 percent of survivors.

A person who is fighting cancer may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). For information about charitable donations, you can visit the AACR’s website, where you can also lookup statistics or find support groups.

If you or a loved one has cancer and you have questions about disability benefits, do not hesitate to contact our Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyers for a free evaluation of your case. You may also reach us by phone at (918) 265-1404.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
