Only about 2 percent of cancer cases are liver cancer. But only about one-fifth of patients diagnosed with liver cancer live one year past diagnosis—making it one of the most deadly forms.

This red-leaved tress is grown in hot tropical regions and is even cultivated in the Southern United States. It flourishes in full sun or partial shade and grow to around 10 feet tall.
