celeBritys4africA and Foot Soldiers are helping Africa

by celeBritys4africA

Africa is so popular among us today. But do you know how "popular" is the cancer disease in Africa? This is a sad part of the story about Africa.

celeBritys4africA creates cancer awareness in Africa.

It’s volunteer arm, Foot Soldiers, gets volunteers to help Africa.

Foot Soldiers share prevention and early detection messages in African communities in the US, Canada, Europe and Africa. The Foot Soldiers network is interested in providing preventive medicine, training and cancer treatment in Africa.

It is worth knowing that one in six African men and one in seven African women will get cancer during their live.

 In Africa, 1 in 600 children develop cancer each year because they are not diagnosed early. The rate of survival is at 30%.

In Africa, cancer is an emerging problem. Most countries do not have environmental protections laws or even when they do, the laws are not enforced. Disposal of chemical waste by both local and foreign businesses can easily be visualized. Most western nations use Africa as a dumping ground for hazardous toxic waste to reduce the cost of recycling these by-products.

We all should help Africa. According to the World Health Organization, by 2020, it is expected that 70% of new cases of cancer will be in developing countries like Africa states, more than a million new cancer cases per year meaning 6,25% of total cases globally.

We should help Africa to get access to cancer resources of prevent it, treat it and more, create awareness on cancer causes and effects.

It is highly important to be diagnosed earlier in order to benefit of cancer treatment services. Both in rural and urban areas.

In the present, 80% of the cancer cases in Africa are diagnosed at late stage where the treatment has no effect or the patient has lack of financial resources to afford it.

The burden of cancer in Africa is huge, the epidemic is impending and fears are abound. Yes, we can work together to reduce the effect of this impending epidemic by tackling the source and spreading the word.

We need to embark on Awareness, Dieting, Physical exercise, Prevention, Training, Treatment, Wellness and Spirituality starting as from this day.

Wow..1 in 600 children with a 30% chance survival rate. Those are such saddening statistics. This is certainly a topic that needs more awareness!
