11+ million projected cancer deaths

by the year 2030

This is the unfortunate projection by the WHO (World Health Organization) for the

number of global cancer deaths by 2030

What is cancer?
Cancer is a generic term for a large group of diseases that can affect any part of the body. Other terms used are malignant tumours and neoplasms. One defining feature of cancer is the rapid creation of abnormal cells that grow beyond their usual boundaries, and which can then invade adjoining parts of the body and spread to other organs, the latter process is referred to as metastasizing. Metastases are a major cause of death from cancer.

 

Between 30–50% of cancers can currently be prevented by avoiding risk factors and implementing existing evidence-based prevention strategies. The cancer burden can also be reduced through early detection of cancer and management of patients who develop cancer. Many cancers have a high chance of cure if diagnosed early and treated adequately.

Cancer Facts: Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, and was responsible for 8.8 million deaths in 2015. Globally, nearly 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.

#FIGTHTCANCER TEAM

Through the support of various organizations and backed by Holiday Travel Network with our first major contribution, we are determined raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer.

 

With high statistics of cancer worldwide, most persons have known someone or themselves be personally affected by this disease. Our aim is to offer assistance on an unprecedented level to organizations worldwide and put the steps in place globally to help #FightCancer!

Cancer Facts: In 2018, there will be an estimated 1,735,350 new cancer cases diagnosed and 609,640 cancer deaths in the United States.

Fighting cancer

Cancer mortality can be reduced if cases are detected and treated early. There are 2 components of early detection:

Early diagnosis

When identified early, cancer is more likely to respond to effective treatment and can result in a greater probability of surviving, less morbidity, and less expensive treatment. Significant improvements can be made in the lives of cancer patients by detecting cancer early and avoiding delays in care.


Screening

Screening aims to identify individuals with abnormalities suggestive of a specific cancer or pre-cancer who have not developed any symptoms and refer them promptly for diagnosis and treatment.

Screening programs can be effective for select cancer types when appropriate tests are used, implemented effectively, linked to other steps in the screening process and when quality is assured. In general, a screening program me is a far more complex public health intervention compared to early diagnosis.

 

Funding Goal
We have set our Phase 1 target of $100,000. This would be followed by the last two Phases allowing for greater access to necessary equipment and funding for this global cause. Our goal is to become one of the largest supported nonprofit organizations worldwide to help #FightCancer!

We encourage any individual or company who wishes to donate, to leave us a message if you know of a facility in your area that may be in need of equipment with regard to the early detection and treatment of cancer
