World Cancer Day is observed on 4th February every year to create awareness about cancer. The theme for the year 2020 is ‘I am and I will’.
Cancer occurs due to the uncontrolled, abnormal growth of cells in the tissue or organ of the body. Cancer can occur at any age and if not detected early and treated, it can be fatal. It is the second leading cause of death globally.
Healthy changes in standard of living and diet can help in reducing the overall risk of cancer.
Here are some inspirational quotes by the cancer survivors which can give others the spirit to fight against the deadly disease.
