Cancer Research and Development

Every time I hear the word “cancer”, I can’t help myself feel sad and afraid at the same time. We all know that the big “C” of any organs in our body is one of the leading causes of death around the world and it’s very alarming already. I have already lost 2 of my aunts (father side) to breast cancer and one of my cousins is also diagnosed with breast cancer few years back. It was devastating to hear about that news and she has gone several operations and chemotherapy and I know how hard and painful it is for the body and financial wise. I just heard that she is now in remission and the good thing is that she’s keeping a positive vibes and hopes about it.

Now, that I learned that breast cancer runs in our family, I can’t help but to feel worried as well. I still don’t have the courage to go to the doctor and have my breast check if there is a lump. I know that self breast examination can also help in detection but you see, fear is making me not to do that as well. I know it’s not a good thing to do but oh well, I’m just afraid to know. I’m sure in the coming days I’ll have an appointment with my doctor.

Anyway, I’m just wishing that there will be more medical breakthroughs in the coming years especially now that a lot of equipment or gadgets are getting more high-tech. Researchers are also doing their best to find all the cure for all types of cancers or diseases. cureLauncher helps in the research, discovery and development of drugs and to find cure for cancer and other diseases that can help all suffering patients. We can always help in our own little way and it we can always donate to cancer research that can help them continue what they are doing. In fact, they have been testing a new drug that can cure lumps or tumors of breast cancer patients that already spread in the brain.

Like we always hear, early detection of any disease is always the best for there is a big chance that it will be healed.

My Cousin's Got a Big "C"

After sobbing while watching disturbing videos on Youtube early today I was faced with a heavy heart once again. I was chatting with my older sister over at YM this afternoon and we were talking about our reconnecting to our cousins in the US via Facebook . I remember my sis telling me that one of my cousin has undergone another surgery and is recuperating so I asked about her once again.

I was dumbfounded when I learned that she was diagnosed to have breast and uterus cancer. Deadly "c' got her and my sis told me that she has few more months or years to live. This is sooooo sad news that I only learned today. I am speechless!.  After losing 2 aunts from breast cancer, now it's her who is affected.

I am actually scared to know that because that only means that it runs in our family and I should really be worried about. I only hope that my cousin can still recover and still a miracle can happen. My prayers are with her.
