Find a Doctor
 
 
 
 
 
All too often, when the doctor utters the word "cancer", what the patient hears is "you are dying". The fact is it need not be so.

Cancer patients are often subject to fears arising out of : ignorance, incomplete or incorrect information, trauma caused by the disease, fear of fatality, social stigmas and the misconception that it is a communicable disease. Our early experiences made us realize that a cure for cancer involves more than just attacking the disease, the economic, social and mental aspects have to be addressed.

Our Cancer Awareness lectures arose out of the realization that most of the fear associated with cancer arose out of a lack of knowledge. We realized that people needed to be told cancer was preventable, detectable at an early stage, and curable if treated promptly.
