World Cancer Support Month

World Cancer Support Month, observed annually in August, stands as a beacon of solidarity and hope for those affected by cancer across the globe. This dedicated month serves as a reminder of the immense strength, resilience, and compassion that unite individuals, families, and communities in the face of this challenging disease.

Cancer, an intricate ailment, arises from the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. These cells can develop into tumors, affecting nearby tissues and, in some cases, spreading to other parts of the body. With over 100 types of cancer, each characterized by distinct behaviors and treatment requirements, it’s a complex adversary that demands comprehensive understanding and dedicated research.

World Cancer Support Month takes a multifaceted approach to addressing this issue. It not only emphasizes the importance of providing medical treatment but also highlights the need for emotional and psychological support for those dealing with cancer. The emotional toll of the disease on patients, families, and caregivers cannot be understated. By fostering an environment of open dialogue, the stigma surrounding cancer can be dismantled, encouraging more people to seek help and resources.

Throughout September, a plethora of initiatives, events, and campaigns are launched to educate people about cancer prevention, early detection, and available treatments. Communities rally together to raise funds for research, patient care, and support services. It’s a time when stories of survival and triumph are shared, inspiring others to find strength in their journey.

Support comes in many forms: from healthcare professionals and researchers dedicating their careers to finding cures, to friends and family offering a shoulder to lean on. World Cancer Support Month underscores the significance of collective efforts in combating cancer’s challenges. By fostering empathy, understanding, and unity, we move closer to a world where cancer’s impact is diminished, and the hope for a healthier future burns ever brighter!

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
