Cancer, it seems like the word in itself is cursed, it is something that people are usually even afraid of naming and a name that we hope would only be a zodiac sign one day. But until then, we think spreading awareness, facing the truth, living in the moment and acceptance is the only way forward. Cancer is one of those diseases that we haven’t found a cure for even in the 21st century and it remains one of the most dreaded enemies to our wellbeing. It is one of the leading causes of deaths around the world and I am sure we all know someone who has lived with Cancer. This is why on World Cancer Day 2022 we have decided to spread awareness and we ask you all to join forces with us and let’s together stand against Cancer.
