The first sign of Cancer was in the 19th Century. It had a different look and different names to its cause and existence with no treatment.
A known treatment is radiation that was discovered by Madam Marie and Miseour Paul Curie by the end of the 19th Century. This treatment is mostly used today. An estimated 14.1 million deaths are due to cancer just calculated by census in 2012.
In the USA Susan G. Komen (a breast cancer survivor) and the founder of the non-profit foundation Susan G. Komen for the Cure stood in the foreground fight for the cure and awareness. She used the pink ribbon in the fall of 1991 and it has become a symbolic as the official symbol of hope in 1992 when the National Breast Cancer Awareness used it to raise awareness.
To date concerned people and companies all over the world stand in support with financial donations for the cure for cancer and respectfully wear purple ribbons for cure for cancer and pink ribbons for cure for breast cancer.
Cancer is a physical disease that kills and it is in the rise. In 2014 an estimated 232,670 new cases of cancer are expected. How can this be expected? The estimate for cancer victims in 2014 is 1,665,540 people. Why is that?
The total number of cancer survivors is growing in leaps and bounds and in part due to early detection and treatment. An estimated 2.8 million women are surviving cancer in the USA alone and that is to be glorified.
My family loss my grandmother Margaret Cobb to lung cancer and she never smoke a cigarette a day in her life. I will forever remember how the disease drained her of her life. My God-sister passed last year after a long battle with cancer as well.
Every year the Pink Cancer Awareness Fire Trucks tour the USA and I had the pleasure of signing a little love note to my grandmother, and two of my very close friends that are cancer survivors. I hope to catch the trucks and place a note of love and faith for my dear friend that is presently battling cancer.
To all of you cancer survivors God bless you and your families and to the brave women surviving breast cancer we celebrate your victory!
