Hannah’s Klozét Foundation(HK) has as one of its major goals, proactive participation in the reduction of the increasing cancer mortality rate in Louisiana’s rural communities where death rates are significantly higher than those in the state’s urban areas.

 

 According to a July 16, 2017, Center for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) report, cancer-related death rates were higher in rural areas (180 deaths per 100,000 persons) compared to urban/city areas (158 deaths per 100,000 persons) and with death rates in rural areas increasing over time.
