CANCER AWARENESS
Cancer Analogy
Most cancers are like weeds in a garden of beautiful healthy flowers. The
cancer cells are like ugly plants
that grow and choke out the good.

Like the hundreds of human cancer types we see, there are many different types of weeds that can choke out a garden. Each requires a different treatment.
Cancer Analogy
Cancer can be treated using
Chemotherapy, Radio Therapy just as the strong chemicals/Herbicides
we use to beat back the ugly plants that have grown (Kills the weeds but sometimes does damage to the surrounding plants).


What is Cancer?
How does cancer happen?
Normal cells
reproduce at a slower rate and naturally die off.

Cancer cells
reproduce at a very quick rate and do not die off naturally. This is basically an overgrowth of cells in an uncontrollable way.

The cancer cells turn into
tumors
.

Benign Tumor
Curable.

Not life threatening.

Does not spread to distant organs.

Usually does not recur.

Malignant Tumor
Curable, if detected at early stage.

Life threatening if NOT detected early.

Spread to distant organs.

May recur.

These
malignant tumors
can break in to smaller pieces and travel to different parts of the body.
Radiation
A basic definition of Radiation is an "emission of energy from any source". Radiation kills Cancer Cell.
Chemotherapy
Cancer Treatment
A basic definition of Chemotherapy is "decreasing the size of tumors for easier and safer removal by surgery."
Don't worry cancer
can be
treated!
