On Breast Cancer

A year ago, a relative succumbed to breast cancer few years after she was diagnosed. It has been said that the overwhelming breast cancer patient occur in women although there are very few men diagnosed with this kind of cancer. It is believed to kills more women than any cancer except lung cancer as one of the cause of death in the world.

When we heard the word “cancer” let’s admit it the first thing that will cross our mind is how bad the patient condition and how long the patient would stay with the family. As we all know the survival rates for breast cancer may vary depending on what type of cancer you’ve, stage and treatment. Geographical location may also vary in terms of survival; developing countries have poorer survival rates while patient from the Western world have a high chance of survival. Now, I know why breast cancer patient who have money choose to have a treatment outside the country just like the actress who is a breast cancer survival.

With this rate of survival, specialist like Dr Lee Roy Morgan continue to work and experiments new drug for breast cancer even if the cancer already spread to some part of the body like brain. I could only pray and hope that cureLauncher could come up with an effective drug to cure breast cancer. However before they can come up with an effective drug they need our donation to support the researcher. For more information you can visit the site now.

I also pray that there would be cure for all cancer. Cancer just bring too much pain physically and emotionally not only to the patient but also to the whole family.

there was a new breakthrough in cancer treatment. however, treatment and survival all boils down as to when cancer is found in its earlier stage.

Years and years of study but nobody can tell what is the cause and how to cure it. So sad that when poor people diagnose with cancer theres nothing we can do but hold on to prayers and hopefully the miracle will happen.

Too bad that cancer still doesn't have a cure until now. Hopefully, soon! A cousin of mine also died from breast cancer a couple years ago. As it always is, it was very devastating.

We lost my FIL to cancer too, Pancreatic Cancer and by the time he was diagnosed, it was already on Stage4, so nothing much can be done for him. :(

I do hope that they find a cure for this sickness too, soon, but for now, I pray for the people who suffer from it and for their family and friends, and may they all be given the courage to face this challenge and survive it as well..

It is all our prayers to have cure for all types of cancer. This is really very awful especially to those who are affected of it first-hand.
