THE STORY:

Everyone on the planet knows at least one  person who has had cancer or has been affected by cancer. In my personal life, I have a grandfather, great uncle, and three friends that have had a cancer of some type. One of my really great firend's mother has had two bouts of breat cancer.

I have seen how families can be torn apart of draw nearer because of this world wide problem. I have seen people wirther away into nothingness. I have seen friends stay up all night long worried about a family member. I have been up all night worried about my family and friends.

What is Cancer?

I personaly would characterize cancer as an monster. but htis is what the American Cancer Society defines cancer as :

Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolledgrowth and spread of abnormal cells. If the spread is not controlled,it can result in death. Cancer is caused by both externalfactors (tobacco, infectious organisms, chemicals, and radiation)and internal factors (inherited mutations, hormones,immune conditions, and mutations that occur from metabolism). These causal factors may act together or in sequence toinitiate or promote carcinogenesis. Ten or more years often pass between exposure to external factors and detectable cancer. Cancer is treated with surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormonetherapy, biological therapy, and targeted therapy. 

Please, let's make this the year that cancer is done away with once and for all.
