Cancer is no joke. It is neither a death sentence.
The latter happens because people have and are dedicating their lives to beat it either as a survivor, a medical expert, a caregiver or someone whom donates to the cause.
Although the fight against cancer happens every minute of the day, a specific day is set aside by stakeholders to talk non-stop about the dreaded yet conquerable illness.
February 4 is World Cancer Day 2021 – a day that unites people, communities and entire countries to celebrate, raise awareness and take action to make living better for all. This year’s theme is; “I Am And I Will”.
2021 shows us that our actions have an impact on everyone around us, within our neighbourhoods, communities and cities and that more than ever, our actions are also being felt across borders and oceans. This year is a reminder of the enduring power of cooperation and collective action. When we choose to come together, we can achieve what we all wish for: a healthier, brighter world without cancer. Together, all of our actions matter. It does not matter if you or your family member has never been affected by the illness. The big question is what will you do?
Cancer is a broad subject matter. Experts define it as a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These contrast with benign tumours, which do not spread.
At Ibiene, we are very passionate about cancer and have discussed it extensively at different times because the bottom line for us is that everyone can and should enjoy the good things of life, top of which is health.
As our way of joining the world to raise awareness here are some of the pieces on cancer that you can read to have a better understanding of the illness. Click on any of the links to read.
The bottom line is, it could happen to anyone. Join hands with the world by living a healthy lifestyles, donate or help spread the news.
