Let's join hands to support the strong fighters who are braving it all against the deadly Cancer disease. Cancer is the cause of millions of deaths worldwide, also note that tobacco consumption accounts to 22% of global cancer deaths and 76% of it is due to lung cancer. Only AWARENESS can save us.

@nomus24g Americans are well aware of it, but there are always foolish people in the world who think they are invincible, especially the smokers.

@nomus24g That is not what I said. Of course cancer affects us all. I said that we are aware of it. There is much awareness here through campaigns, etc. There are many people who still choose to smoke, and even the young do.

@nomus24g maybe the timing is that only few are online at that moment this was posted. Actually... that time is really off peak of members.

Certainly cancer is a terrible disease. Hopefully they will gradually get the better of it.
