Today I want to talk about very painful topic to some of us, about disease which without immediate action, the global number of deaths from cancer will increase by nearly 80% by 2030. Most of us can’t even imagine how suffers families that has members who carries this disease with them. This is one of the scariest disease I could ever imagine to have. People that has cancer are usually considered as walking dead, thought they are still alive they consider them self already gone.
That’s sad to hear since they lose hope . I can’t say that everyone lower their hands, but most of them stops living very first second that they know : diagnosis is cancer.
Although proven ways to prevent cancer exist, these services and technologies are not widely available in low- and middle-income countries. It’s not right that not everyone has the same ability to be healthy again, but the fact that the hope exists should be known for every single human being, because hope does magic.
According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer , in 2012, the most commonly diagnosed cancers worldwide were—
- Lung cancer (13% of all cancers diagnosed, 1.8 million people).
- Breast cancer (12% of all cancers diagnosed, 1.7 million people).
- Colorectal cancer (10% of all cancers diagnosed, 1.4 million people).
and the most common causes of cancer death worldwide in 2012 were—
- Lung cancer (19% of all cancer deaths, 1.6 million people).
- Liver cancer (9% of all cancer deaths, 800,000 people).
- Stomach cancer (9% of all cancer deaths, 700,000 people).
What’s more upsetting that children has cancer too. They have to go from one hospital to other and they have almost no ability to see more, to live like healthy kids and to exist like every other person. We can’t imagine how hard it is to raise a child which has cancer and I wish that no one had to feel that pain, to see their child suffering.
We should bring back hope to people hearts and make them feel alive again even if cancer exists we can make it be less visible and paintfull to those people.
I want to invite you all to the hair donation. Couple of days ago I cut my hair from long to really short and found a program that does wigs for children that are suffering from cancer, I want to invite you all to join and be part of this good cause, because even your hair donation can bring hope to the little heart of a child.
