Finally, I am here after posting 10 entries regarding cancer disease. I really hope that you will enjoy reading my blog and become more aware after this.

For further information, if you ever sense something is wrong with your body, don’t procrastinate and quickly meet a doctor. It is okay to experience minor pain instead of feeling extremely painful later on. I also would be please if you make a medical appointment or check-up at hospital to ensure that everything is fine regarding your health. Bear in mind that cancer is not something that we can’t take for granted. Take these things seriously as it involves your daily life.

Don’t be sad if you have been diagnosed with cancer disease! Take it as a challenge for your life. Be more serious in taking care of your health and your food consumption as well. You should also live with people that will bring you smile and surround yourself with them. Don’t think too much as it will lead you to depression. Smile and stay positive. You are still alive so live your life well.

To sum up the 10 entries, I really hope that you will focus more on your health after this. Being healthy is priceless. So, take care of your health and let’s say no to cancer!!! :) 



Before this, we have talked about the importance of family support for cancer patients. How they influenced them in their daily life and how their help is important in making cancer patient overcome their disease.

Today, I want to talk about the importance of self-motivation among cancer patients.
I know it is hard for them to overcome their problems and feelings when they found out that they had been diagnosed with cancer disease. But, feeling sad and emotion will not give any help at all for them as it won’t solve anything. As a human being, it is normal to have those kinds of feelings and emotion. If we remain strong, there won’t be such word as giving up or else. Think about our parents, our family and our children (those who have their own family). Don’t give up. Think about how you want to maintain fit in order to take care of them. Bear in mind that everyone in your family loves you so must love yourself first!

Next, if the doctor suggested that you will be given chemotherapy to cure your disease, follow their instruction. Though it might hurt you and your body are full with aches, bear it. Think about your health. Your will and strength is needed to overcome those treatments. Don’t think too much as it will hurt you more. If you are not ready with the chemotherapy or any other radiation treatment, you can proceed with natural treatment. I know those treatment will not affect much in making you feel better, but at least get a treatment and don’t just sit without doing anything. Things that you are always do will soon become used. So please, bear with it for your health.

As I’ve been talking about huge support from family members and friends, you yourself need to set a positive mind-set. Don’t bother your mind by having negative thinking as it will lead you to depression. Make your own life cheerful and amazing by doing a thing that you never tried. Such as bungee jumping, kayaking and many more! It is not wrong to do something extreme if you still have energy in your body.  Everything happens for a reason. You can also set a mind-set that become cancer patient is gift from God. Not everyone will have the same faith like you. Make changes in your life. Become a good person and open your mind more after this. I am sure that a positive mind will lead to a positive life.




As we all know, cancer patients requires huge support from people. They need someone to talk to, someone to take care of them when they were feeling sick, someone to know their problem and someone that can help then whenever they are in need. We as a society should help them in making their dreams come true. Don’t just neglect them if they are not your family members. Help them as much as you can if that will make them happier like before.

In this entry, I suggested that we created a support group among cancer patients. This is to ensure that they will not feel alone. This support groups provide a time and space for patients and their family members to discuss feelings, concern and problems among each other. By having this kind of group, they will feel much better at ease as everyone around him were giving them support and reminds them to stay positive.

Hospital authorities can inspired every patients with motivational stories by creating a group of cancer patients. By doing so, they can talk each other among themselves and share their experience when undergoing surgery, chemotherapy or any other treatment. They can also share their experience on how they get cancer disease and how they manage to overcome it. If they are doing so, somehow they will get inspirational among each other and the percentage to stay healthy will increase! We never knew until we try to do so.

Hospital authorities can also help them by letting them share their ups and down with the patients. Make them felt grateful that they manage to survive and still alive. Make them talk if that is the things that they want. Provide the things that they need and never felt hard about it. We all knew that they are kind of person whom are sensitive especially in this kind of situation. Don’t make them hurt by ignoring them. Help them. If some of you are not able in taking care of them, at least you talk nicely with them. By doing so, I’m sure they also will become more open and appreciate more on what you’ve done.

Remember that the key to a successful relationship is helping each other unpack all the unwanted baggage and throw it away.



Cancer patients is undergoing chemotherapy treatment

Chemotherapy is one of the ways on how to cure cancer disease. According to American Cancer Society, chemotherapy is the use of medicine or drugs to treat any cancer. Though doing chemo might frighten many people, it can actually give a better sense of control in preventing cancer.  Some might know but some may be not. When cancer patient are undergo chemotherapy, there are actually side effect that will affect the patient. For example the patient will felt tired and weak all the time. This is due to the medicines used in chemo that can’t distinguish between fast-growing cancer and other type of cells. Due to that reason, cancer patient who received treatment will always get tired and feeling sick all the time. Hair losses are also side effect that most people knew. Some treatments only cause partial hair loss or thinning but some might lose hair from all over their body. To explain this, different type of chemotherapy drugs have varying effects while radiotherapy causes hair loss where the treatment has been focused only. To add on, don’t worry if you are losing your hair too much. There are many ways for you to overcome it. For example, cut your hair first before the treatment so that it will not seem as dramatic when it happens. Wear a cap and also wig! It will actually help you to overcome the hair loss problem.

Focus on your health first and not your appearance!

Next is Radiation therapy. For this treatment, it uses targeted energy such as X-Rays, radioactive substance and many more. Radiation therapy will destroy cancer cells, shrink tumour and other cancer-related symptoms. It can also stop the growth of cancer cells so that it will not spread enough to all over the body. According to Cancer Centre, there are three types of radiation therapy. For external therapy, radiation is directed from a machine outside the body such as IMRT, IGRT and many more. Radioactive material is placed directly near a tumour is internal radiation therapy. It will use high-dose rate brachytherapy. Lastly is systematic radiation therapy which substance that need to swallow or injected to cancer patient to destroy cancerous cells. It will use radioactive iodine therapy. Like what I’ve said earlier, side effect is normal if you are undergoing a treatment. For radiation therapy, it will cause skin change, fatigue, nausea and other part of the body that only being treated compared to chemotherapy.

Process of Radiation therapy treatment


Acupuncture that has been practice in China and any other Asian country for thousands of years ago can also be used.  It can stimulate anatomical points on the body through variety of techniques. Next is aromatherapy. Use Lavender or peppermint that may help you to stop spasms in gastrointestinal tract.  You can also use ginger in capsule or tablet form to help your immune system. So, if some people out there who are scared in undergo a surgery or any other therapy, you can also use natural therapy to cure your disease.

See? There is a lot of medical treatment that are available nowadays. Do not be scared or frighten. Choose any method that you like so that you will get cured from cancer. Don’t let cancer cells domain your body system. Be brave! 


Assalamualaikum, hello readers!

We often heard Stop Smoking Campaign, Anti-Drugs Campaign and many more. If those campaigns do exist in this world, why don’t we create campaign to cancer patients? For an example, we can create those campaigns and promote it through advertisement. By doing so, people will get interested and would want to joined the programmed.

Hospital authorities such as doctor, nurse and paramedic should joined and gives some explanations about cancer disease so that people will know more about the disease.  Let them know about the pros and cons that cancer will do if the diseases are attacking your life. Does it give bad effect or does it not? Those campaigns somehow will create awareness among society. If they have been given a lot of information about the cancer disease, they surely will take care of their health more and will be more open about the problem.

Some might said that launching a campaign won’t give any benefits. Make them wrong by launching a campaign or programmed that will open up their mind. For example, Just Stand Up campaign for Breast Cancer awareness. Do not just specifically those campaigns for women and make it to unisex. By doing that, both men and women will get interested to attending those campaign. Explain to them that breast cancers are not only attacking women but also men! Show them the percentage or research about cancer disease that available in this world.

Sharing is caring. In Just Stand Up campaign, prepared a doctor or a counsellor. By doing so, people that attend the campaign will become open to talk about their problem. Though some of them might not share their problem, at least they will end up knowing ways on how to solve their problem.
Do not just aiming for a successful event. Make people who attend the campaign satisfied with the programmed. By doing so, both party will get good results.
