    World Cancer Day 4 Feb 2015

    February 4th, 2015

    Can Fight Cancer celebrates the World Cancer Day 2015 in a spirit of fearlessness, bravery and optimism. A few lines dedicated to the brave survivors, patients and their families….

    The life of a patient or a survivor is so full of energy

    With individual efforts combined, it generates such synergy

    Even the worst of scenarios just seem to be at ease

    All the worries and cares just seem to cease

    For the Divine Will can overcome any condition how bad

    It is always joyous in that domain, no sorrow never sad

    For one who lives in the true spirit, in the present always

    Never regrets the past, nor does count the number of days

    Such are the survivors, the soldiers who beat the night

    Come out victors, no matter how long or ugly the fight

    For smiles await the ones who do not give up or despair

    For such qualities are exhibited only in a few rare

    So why are you sad, no one is immortal on this Earth

    There are always different struggles, for anyone taking birth

    You are the chosen ones, the fortunate messengers of health

    For if you live your best, that is your greatest wealth

    Once upon a time there was a girl so sweet

    She would just be on FB and many times a day tweet

    Life was just like heaven for she never had anything lack

    What she was her parents provided, never was any slack

    Then one day she found a growth in her body she did not care

    Yet it was her mother who insisted for a doc, when one day she saw her bare

    Tests were done and it was revealed that she had starting phase of cancer indeed

    She needed to be treated fast else the growth could certainly catch up speed

    It was then that the girl realized what actually had gone wrong

    Yet she knew no point being weak, she indeed had to be strong

    Off she went for the lands so remote even anyone could be afraid

    She just enjoyed life as it came and helped her parents in their trade

    Yet she always took care to eat the medicines dot on time

    It was the only way to ensure, she enjoyed most of her life prime

    Today she is fully well and recovered and goes to school with her friend

    May life has been a bit harsh but she has adjusted to the trend

    Each year she gets tests done and never does she ever skip

    Her parents also take her each year to a lovely touring foreign trip

    Let us all hope that whoever suffers from cancer does recover this way

    Happiness comes to their lives, that is all that we each must Pray

    For brave are such souls who fight with this enemy and each time they win

    They never give up hope or faith, neither does their face loses its grin

    Hats off to the such courage and to small kids who teach lessons big

    We are just a small branch of the world tree, and just a tiny little twig

    Who Is A Cancer Survivor?

    February 14th, 2014

    Who is a Cancer Survivor? Cancer survivor is a person who has successfully fought cancer. Cancer is one of the dreaded diseases known to man. Fighting it out does require medication and treatment. However, the doctors will tell you that more than medication what it takes to survive cancer is will power and determination to live.

    The Will To Survive

    There are many who get cancer. Some succumb to it and some fight it out. There have been cases in medical history where people have survived even after doctors gave up all hopes. This can be termed as a miracle and on the other hand you can also treat it has a huge case of human achievement. Some cancer survivors will tell you that they were able to do so as they had great support from friends and family. This is exactly why we must say that the family too can be considered as cancer survivor.

    Some consider as cancer to be the end of life. They feel that they cannot survive it. This is not the case. Just check online and you will get thousands of cases of people who have survived the disease and are living happily. Reading their experiences and interacting with these people will help you feel more positive. It will also give you a sense of happiness and satisfaction. You will get the determination to fight the disease.

    Challenge Or Life Changing Experience

    Many cancer survivors say that it was a life changing experience for them. It helped them to improve as a person and allowed them to appreciate the value of life. This is similar to what a person who survived near to death experience feels. Surviving cancer is more of non medical points that help people to survive cancer are more than the medical points. We cannot name some specific people who have survived cancer as there are so many of them. Each story of cancer survival is unique and special so there is no point listing some.

    The topic is a debatable one. Some people believe that it is the medicines that make cancer survival possible. Some on the other hand argue that if same medicines are given to people how it is possible that some recover faster and also live a better life. Some on the other hand succumb too. The psychologists say that those who have a stronger will power and want to survive at any cost will mostly be able to survive cancer easily. On the other hand people who give up easily will not be able to survive the cancer. Even the cancer treatment is painful. It has a lot of side effects that can be very agonising. It can only be possible for those to survive it that have a strong reason to live. The physical challenges of cancer are easier to beat compared to the mental and emotional challenges.

    Points To Remember

    Some points that the cancer survivors commonly suggest to those suffering from cancer are as follows:

    1. Try to be happy from within. Do not lose hope. Find a reason to smile.
    2. It is important to be positive if you want to survive cancer.
    3. Surround yourself with people who make you happy and fill you with positive energies. This is indispensible to treat cancer.
    4. Ensure that you rest well and do things that make you happy. Distract your mind from your pain and this will help you to relax better.
    5. Get a pet as they help a lot in surviving cancer.
    6. Do not take mental and physical stress as much as possible.
    7. Try to develop a hobby that will keep you occupied and relax you.
    8. Do not look at the impossibilities of dealing with cancer, look at the possibilities. Check examples of other who have survived the disease.
    9. The family members of the cancer patient must also be cooperative with the patient and help them live a better and a happy life. If they make the patient happy they will recover faster.
    10. Some cancer survivors say that they thought of to do list of all that they wanted to do in their life. This helped them to survive the pain and gave them hope.
    11. Try to learn yoga if possible. This can be very effective in relaxing the mind and making the body stronger. However, it must be done only after the doctor permits.
    12. Try to stay away from people who talk negative and who make you sad or angry. Negative feelings can be very bad in cancer and reduce the chances of survival considerably.
    13. Read stories and experiences of cancer survivors so that you can get inspired and motivated.
    14. The cancer patient must be difficult to handle for the family members. They must be patient and always cooperate with the patient. It is better to be always present around the patient. This makes them feel cared for and increases their will to live on.

    You Can Be A Survivor
