What is cancer?

Cancer is the general term for a large group
of diseases, whose causes and characteristics
vary differently. Cancer appears when cells in
your body start to divide abnormally, while old
ones don’t die when they should. They
eventually form a lump known as a tumour
which can then start to spread around your
body. Most cancers start due to gene changes
that happen over a person’s lifetime. There are
over 200 types of cancer with 1 in 3 people
getting it in their lifetime.

Cancer accounts for 1 in 6

deaths around the world

CANCER STAGING

Stage 1

Usually means that a cancer is relatively small
and contained within the organ it started in.

Stage 2

Usually means that the tumour is larger than
in stage 1, but the cancer has not started to
spread into the surrounding tissues.

Stage 3

Usually means the cancer is larger. It may have
started to spread into surrounding tissues and
there are cancer cells in the lymph nodes in
the area.

Stage 4

Means the cancer has spread from where it
started to another body organ. This is also
called secondary or metastatic cancer

Cancer is the second leading 
cause of death worldwide

SILENT

KILLER

Background

Cancer is the world’s biggest killer with 1 in 2 getting
it at some point in theirs lives. Why for such a massive
issue do we know so little, in a world with unlimited
technology and communication. Is it that we don’t care
enough or are the current methods not advanced
enough to solve the issue of the disease. The cure for
cancer is one of the biggest unanswered questions we
face. Its solution starts with the understanding and
engagement of the disease.

One thing for certain is we all know someone who has
had cancer, but still we can’t openly talk about the
details of the problem. The charities aren’t helping
themselves with dull campaigns focus only on the
elderly disengaging the majority of people and the
information being displayed.  Our plan is to demystify
the word cancer,  not let it control/destroy our lives
and to explore alternative ways of dealing with it….

CAUGHT EARLY,
CANCER IS OFTEN
CURABLE.

Nuts

Regularly eating nuts can be linked to a lower risk of certain types of cancer. Walnuts contain a substance called pedunculagin, which the body metabolizes into urolithins. Urolithins are compounds that bind to receptors and may play a role in preventing breast cancer.

Gooseberries

The antioxidant activity found in gooseberries help prevent cell mutations that lead to tumor growth and cancer development.
