Headline/Subject: The Texas Cancer Plan can help you save money, boost your energy and preserve your youth

Of course, a few actions are required on your part. Eat your veggies. Get outside and move. Quit (or don't begin) smoking. Volunteer. Stay up to date on your health screenings. You get the idea.

Sure, you've heard it all before, but have you heard that in 2012, it is estimated that more than 110,000 Texans will be told, "You have cancer"? Approximately 39,000 Texans are expected to lose their lives to cancer this year.

While these statistics are sobering, Texans aren't the type to roll over and give in without a fight. The 2012 Texas Cancer Plan ("Plan") outlines actions all Texans can take to help our state lead the nation in the fight against cancer.

The overall success of the Plan depends on you. It depends on us. Show your Texas pride by joining the fight against cancer and encouraging others to do the same. Whether you're a [choose one or more: hospital, a state or local agency, a school/university, an employer, a medical professional, a non-profit or community-based organization, a legislator] or simply an honest-to-goodness Texan, there's something in the Plan for you!
