A new report from the American Cancer Society finds the number of cancer survivors in America continues to grow.

The group estimates there are more than 14 million survivors in the U.S. today.

That number is expected to reach 19 million by 2024.

The report says even though the rates of new cancer cases are decreasing, the number of cancer survivors is growing.
