The American Cancer Society says Colorado is behind the rest of the nation when it comes to battling cancer.
The organization released a statement today indicating that Colorado is lagging behind other states in five key areas.
Those include Medicaid coverage for smoking cessation treatment, tobacco excise taxes, tobacco control program funding, access to colorectal cancer screening, and preserving insurance coverage for cancer screenings.
The only area where Colorado is close to the society's minimum standard is in counseling or drug therapy, for people who are quitting smoking.
Cancer society spokesman RJ Ours says every state legislator has the power to help eradicate cancer in Colorado.
