Cancer



Cancer is known as the silent killer.

It changes cells to start maliciously multiplying

to spread and kill other cells.

There are so many types of cancer,

  most remain undetected.

  By the time the symptoms show, depending

  on the cancer it could be too late.

  The treatment is often times as bad as the cancer.

  Chemotherapy and radiation while killing the cancer,

  destroy other cells and lower your immunity.

  Maybe someday someone will come up with

  a vaccine against cancer.
