As an oncologist, I join the global campaign awareness to celebrate today (National Cancer Survivors’ Day) in a special way with our Dear Gallant Heroes, the Cancer Survivors. I also take some time to remember those who fought a good fight and have gone to rest.
I’m glad a day is set aside to celebrate survivors who are living with, through and beyond the disease.
Today, we get to hear their voices beyond our consulting rooms.
We gain insight as we listen and learn from their stories of trials and triumphs. Their stories gives us hope and encouragement that our labour is not in vain as well as help modify and improve the way we care for them.
Cancer journey can be overwhelming…
