Be Clear on Cancer: Know the Easiest and Fastest Way to Fight this Killer Disease

With the high prevalence of cancer, specifically breast cancer in the country, taking at least 16 percent of the 50,000 cases diagnosed with cancer (2010 Philippine Cancer Facts and Estimates), medical authorities stress that cancer is a preventable and curable disease. Also, understanding the disease can make a difference in helping every Filipino be proactive in the battle against cancer.
