“Standing Up to Cancer: I Can; We Can”

IMG_20160203_204455

Mumbai, 3rd February 2016: On World Cancer Day, 4th February 2016 Association of Hospital (AOH), one of the oldest and trusted associations in healthcare of Mumbai, stresses on the significance of individual and collective efforts in fighting cancer. As the second-most common cause of death next to cardiac diseases, creating awareness about the disease is extremely important.

 

Close to 8.2 million people in the world fall victim to the plague of cancer – a deadly disease that often attacks without any warning. Of these, 4 million people die prematurely (between the ages of 30 to 69 years). In India itself, 6% of all deaths are caused due to cancer. It is a complicated disease that causes uncontrolled growth and spread of cells, and one whose treatment can easily burn a hole in a family’s savings. Let alone those who do not have the financial acumen to get themselves treated.

 

Commenting on this occurrence, Dr. PM Bhujang, President of the Association of Hospitals said, “This year’s theme for World Cancer Day “We can. I can” corroborates our belief that we have to reduce the burden of fighting cancer together – either as an individual or a collective society. Everyone can do their bit in fighting cancer. Keeping in mind the difficulty experienced during treatment and recovery processes, support even in the form of a hug or a kind word, and is always welcome”

 

Further he adds, “Today we face a higher risk of cancer due to drastic lifestyle changes one of which includes excessive tobacco consumption. Early screening and improving lifestyle have known to reduce the risks of cancer.  Around 30% of all cancer deaths could be avoided by simply improving our lifestyle.”
