According to statistics, cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States. What makes it more scary is the fact that anyone can develop this disease which is characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells in the body.
Various factors, both external and internal, could put one at a higher risk for developing cancer but some kinds of cancer can be prevented by trying to avoid the following factors/conditions: tobacco use, obesity, physical inactivity, poor nutrition and too much sun exposure. Behavioral changes, vaccines and antibiotics can also help prevent other types of cancer.
I found a site that allows one to become part of the solution in the cure and prevention of cancer and other diseases. They empower people to advance new medical treatments by bringing medical researchers and private donors together. cureLauncher finds the best medical researchers and doctors who need additional funding to keep their researches moving forward and then gives the opportunity for anyone, including you, to donate to any of these researches through their website.
Currently, their site is featuring a project or research called DM-CHOC-PEN. It is a chemotherapy drug for breast cancer that has spread to the brain, liver or lungs. They are targeting a $10,000 funding for this research but has received $1,971 from 20 donors so far.
Check out the cureLauncher website and see how you can help the world, one step at a time.
