World Cancer Day
Today, February 4th, is World Cancer Day. I'm sure every person reading this post has had their lives touched by cancer in one way or another. Either a friend, a family member, or perhaps, you yourself has struggled with this life changing disease. I don't really know what I can say about cancer - it's scary and it's heartbreaking to see a loved one suffer from it. Once you've dealt with it, you never look at life the same way again, which in some ways isn't a bad thing because we tend to appreciate the important things in our lives a little bit more, especially family and friends.
In many cases, cancer is preventable. There is still a lot that is unknown about the causes of cancer. The important thing is that we stay educated about the disease and be diligent in doing all that we can to avoid it.
