Stand Up to Cancer Day
Cancer has been one of the leading causes for death worldwide for many centuries. Now is the right time to stand up to cancer day!
Cancer is a deadly disease that has been around for many thousand of years. It may have existed since the dawn of human history, but the first case was documented in ancient Egypt. This case is described on a papyrus dating back to 1500 BC. It describes a woman who had a breast cancer.
Research has been ongoing to find a cure for different types of cancer as medicine evolves in modern times. The hope for patients with cancer is increasing as new treatments like radiology, chemotherapy and immunology are developed.
Research has been extensive in understanding the causes of various types of cancer. It also reveals early warning signs that can help people take preventative action. These include campaigns to reduce lung cancer, encouraging people to quit smoking, reducing breast and cervical cancers with mammogram screenings, as well as promoting early colonoscopies to catch colon cancer early.
However, scientists and medical professionals cannot continue their research unless they have the financial support to do so. Stand Up to Cancer Day is here.
Stand Up to Cancer was founded in 2007 by several women whose lives were affected by cancer. Katie Couric, NBC’s Today Show host, is one of the most prominent founders. Her husband, who died from colon cancer in 1998 was also a founding member.
Stand Up to Cancer raised $746 million by 2021 for cancer research. This number is growing. It has raised more than $746 million for cancer research and brought together over 2,000 scientists from around the globe. This is a collaboration between professionals and scientists to eliminate cancer from its place as the leading cause for death in the world.
