I have undertaken the fight against cancer few years back and, I strongly believe that ‘Hope’ is the most important formula that has helped me win over cancer. Ignorance and denial will only result in diagnosis and treatment delays, which could prove fatal in many cases. Cancer did change my life, but only to a better and positive person who is now a bastion of hope for the many undergoing the journey right now. I would urge each and every one to take their heath a little more serious and be well informed of its warning signs.”
