Cure Cancer

How many people in the world have cancer?

žGlobally, it’s estimated that 100 million people across the world had any of the forms of cancer in 2017. This number has more than doubled since 1990 when an estimated 45 million had cancer. Many of these patients who suffer from cancer can not even effort its treatment cost and die without any treatment.

CANCER

žEvery sixth death in the world is due to cancer, making it the second leading cause of death. In 2017, 9.6 million people are estimated to have died from the various forms of cancer. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) put relatively small error margins around this global figure: the lower and upper estimates extend from 9.2 to 9.7 million. žProgress against many other causes of deaths and demographic drivers of increasing population sizelife expectancy and — particularly in higher-income countries — aging populations mean that the total number of cancer deaths continues to increase. This is a very personal topic to many: nearly everyone knows or has lost someone dear to them from this collection of diseases. žCancers are defined by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as a collection of diseases in which abnormal cells can divide and spread to nearby tissue. As this definition suggests, cancers can arise in many parts of the body  and in some cases spread to other parts of the body through the blood and lymph systems.

A small story

žIt’s a personal experience that inspired me to help cancer patients. žI was in class 12th reading in Oriental Public School, Kalyani. Everything was going fine, until we heard the news that one of my school’s student was suffering from brain cancer. He was a kid of class 5. I was touched by it. žHis parents belonged from a middle class family and could not effort the entire cost of the treatment so his parents requested our school principle to help him out. žOur principle dictated the entire story next day in the assembly and asked us to donate some money. žWe all were more than happy to donate. A few months later, in the assembly, the child’s mother, father and he himself came to say thank you. žHis mother almost broke down. Most of us were in tears. I still remember her face, flushed in tears as she held her son with one hand and the mike on the other. žBut the good news was, after the long fight he could join our school after six months. žThat incident left an everlasting impression on my mind.

HOW CAN WE HELP THEM?

žWe can help them by donating money. žWhenever someone buys anything from our website, it’s 2% goes for the treatment of the cancer patients. žIn this way we can help these people with a little contribution, because small drops of water can together make a sea.
