There is a lot of information about cancer available, but some of it is misleading or wrong. Below are
the facts behind some of the most common cancer myths and misconceptions. Your health care team is
also a good resource if you have any questions about the accuracy of anything you hear or read.
MYTH: Cancer is contagious.
FACT: Cancer is not contagious. However, some cancers are caused by viruses and bacteria that can
be spread from person to person. Certain types of the human papillomavirus (HPV) have been known to cause
cervical, anal, and some kinds of head and neck cancers. Hepatitis B and hepatitis C are viruses that increase the
risk of developing liver cancer. Bacteria like H. pylori can cause stomach cancer. It is important to remember that while the viruses and bacteria that cause some cancers can be spread from person to person, the cancers they cause cannot be spread from person to person. “El que tenga ojos para ver, qué vea.... y el que tenga oídos para escuchar que escuché.....”

    whale spotted in illinois river A humpback whale was spotted near Morris IL in the Illinois River today. The sighting comes just days after 2 Great White Sharks were seen frolicking in the same area. While not impossible, it does seem unlikely. It is thought that the whale may have followed the sharks as they sometimes do in the wild. The whale would of had to travel over 1250 miles to get to this location. The Marine Biologist Association will be in town for a full investigation. Until we have answers, we are asking folks to keep their pontoons and fishing boats docked.

    two great white sharks found swimming in mississippi river near saint louis, missouri. While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Saint Louis have contacted the Missouri Conservation Department and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
