Cancer and heart disease are the two leading causes of death among Nebraskans. They account for nearly half of the deaths in the state.

Learning more about cancer and how to treat it is the subject of the latest Good, Healthy Life program on NET Television.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska is a funding partner of the program.

In this episode we meet Phil Arbie from Lincoln who found a mole that lead to melanoma.

Good, Healthy Life is a long term effort focused on the health and well-being of Nebraskans.  The series addresses health concerns in the state, offers practical guidance for healthy living and provides information for those affected when a loved-one deals with a health issue.
