As we close off the Breast Cancer awareness month let me take some time to encourage and charge us to take very good care of our health. I am not a health expert but one thing I know for sure; what you do not know will kill you. It is very important that we develop good relations with our doctors for regular check-ups. Sometimes we are too busy with everything except our health. We chase after the wealth and ignore our health. How are we to enjoy the wealth with dying bodies?
Let's pay particular attention to CANCER. We need to know our bodies thoroughly such that we can immediately notice when there is any strange development. Early detection can save your life. I want to encourage you out there to go for Pap smear at least annually or as per your doctor's recommendation. It is rather an uncomfortable procedure but rather that than losing your precious life. Also, let's ensure that we go for Mammograms.
We all have people around us that are either going through the battle with cancer or went through cancer and now are survivors. Such people need our love, support and affirmation. Their lives change somehow. It may not even be your family members but in the society around you. Make a difference by touching someone's life. During the month of October I shaved my hair in support of those fighting this disease. You also can show support in any way;you may not shave your hair but offer your support the best way you can. Also, we can show support by educating our communities about this disease.
I wish to pay homage to all the survivors out there,you girls are My BRAVEHEARTS! If you are currently battling with this disease,please do not lose heart. You can beat it! You have a cloud of witnesses around you that have travelled the path and conquered. You are bigger and stronger than the disease. Keep on fighting! There is 'CAN' in CANcer because it CAN be beaten!
