This year, 110 thousand New Yorkers will be diagnosed with cancer.
And the state is not doing everything it could be when it comes to prevention and access to healthcare, according to the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network.
The group released its 'how do you measure up' report today.
And in five of nine categories, New York does measure up.
But in others, especially when it comes to tobacco control, the state is lacking.
Julie Hart, the group's government relations director for New York explains further.
