O C T O B E R A W A R E N E S S ~
October is known as the breast cancer month. Breast cancer owns the highest rate of occurrence among women, followed by thyroid cancer! However, 3 breast cancer patients were diagnosed among men too!!! In Qatar, according to Qatar cancer society.
Today, I was honored to join CNAQ in their cancer awareness day, and take part of the panel as a speaker, sharing my past experience when I was still 17 years old, which makes me feel proud of myself getting over this fear (talking about or sharing such an intimate personal experience in front of an audience) and passing another milestone in my life before this year ends!
Cancer doesn't differentiate between age, gender, or even race! Which is why we have to use this opportunity to spread the awareness too, and take an effective role contributing to our community (even your smaller community which is your family). A mammogram is nothing but a way of helping us to become better and healthier, as well as the other ways of diagnosis!
There are many other types of cancer which can be discovered and treated as early as possible too, only by continual check ups and your body care!
Everyone is having their own battle which you might know no nothing about, do not ever underestimate them, and be a helping hand instead!
A shoutout to all fighters and survivors everywhere, you are powerful beyond measure, and you have gone through this or going through it because you can!
P.s.: this pink ribbon is the representation of breast cancer, and the blue butterfly 🦋 is for Qatar cancer society! And there are other colors for other cancer types as well :) .
كل تمنياتي بالشفاء و القوة لكل محاربي الأمراض في كل مكان...
