“Cancer is preventable, detectable early and highly Curable! If you follow – 1). No Smoking or Chewing Tobacco, 2). Healthy Diet, 3) 40 min. of physical exercise you can prevent 70% of Cancers. Regular health check-ups annually can detect early Cancer. Do not ignore warning signs and symptoms of Cancer” says Dr Vijay Anand Reddy, Director, Apollo Cancer Institutes, Hyderabad.
The drivers donning T- shirts and cars sporting stickers of “I AM and I WILL” emphasized on the fact that ‘YOU’ could BE a student, teacher, engineer, doctor or any professional, but you need to take a pledge that YOU WILL join this fight against cancer. Your “part” in this battle can range from promising to eat healthy, stop smoking and help others do the same, exercising daily, to educate others about cancer etc. These little efforts from each individual can help overcome barriers of cancer prevention, screening, early detection and treatment.
“The year 2020 has taught us all that an individual’s action can affect an entire community/city and even in countries across borders and oceans, but it has also taught us that when we get together nothing can beat our collective strength. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world, the present ‘pandemic’ I would say and on this world cancer day I would like to stress that each and every one of us, as individuals with our collective strength should fight this dreadful disease just like we fought Covid”, I AM AN ONCOLOGIST AND I WILL HELP MY PATIENTS BEAT CANCER, says Dr Vijay Karan Reddy, Consultant Oncologist, Apollo Cancer Institutes.
