The following are quotes from medical copywriter
"Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can fill anyone with an undeniable sense of dread.
With the global prevalence of various cancer forms seemingly growing by the day,
the notion that 'this won’t happen to me… it happens to other people' is beginning to phase out.
Cancer is touching more and more lives."
"Think about it… you probably know at least one person who has battled this disease.
But if it hasn’t affected someone very close to you, how much do you really understand about the impact it has on a person’s life?
Awareness campaigns like 'Forever Changed' are going beyond ‘knowledge is power’ initiatives,
generating proactive plans that provide support where it is most needed."
"Cancer is spreading… It’s touching everybody’s life. Young and old,
cancer is likely to affect each of us in some capacity or another at some point in our lifetimes, and for some,
perhaps even on more than one occasion. It can happen to you. It can happen to a loved one or even a colleague.
While not a very comforting thought, it is the stark reality that few can now ignore."
