  Original Published: 9/25/2013 New medical research finds being married may help improve the chances of surviving cancer. The study looked at more than 700,000 people diagnosed with the most deadly cancers. Researchers found patients who were married were more likely to detect the disease early, receive potentially curative treatments, and live longer. They saw a 20-percent reduction in deaths among patients who were married, compared with unmarried patients. Scientists believe the social support a patient gets within a marriage leads to better survival rates. The study showed unmarried patients were half as likely to receive appropriate therapies. These finds were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
