World Cancer Day

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Select R.E.

Today, February 4th is World Cancer day.

 

World Cancer Day is celebrated all over the world to raise awareness about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of cancer. This day is celebrated on 4th of February every year. It was first recommended and organized by the Union for international Cancer Control (UICC) to encourage and support the World Cancer declaration goals, which were written in 2008. The primary goal of celebrating this day is to reduce illness and deaths caused by this disease.

 

If you and your loved ones have not been touched by this disease, consider yourself very fortunate. Cancer is devastating, and it affects not only the patient but all those around them who love them so very much.

 

Today I will wear purple, and I will be strong for all those who are fighting this most horrific disease.

Good Thursday morning geri wehry -

Thanks for sharing this.  I hate cancer.  It took two of my very young sisters, my wife is a survivor and now both her parents are battleing the beast.  There has to be an answer.....

Oh John, I am so very sorry! :(    I agree there has to be an answer. I am so happy that your wife kicked it to the curb! I will keep her parents and the rest of your family in my prayers. It is just as hard on all of you -  please tell you wife to take care of herself…  eat right, sleep lots, and take time for herself to re-charge her batteries so she can be there for her parents.
