Cancer: What it is and how you can help

Cancer has killed many people including my great uncle. I really care about people with cancer because I have had many family members have cancer.

Currently about 7.6 million people die from cancer every year

Cancer is a disease in which cells abnormally grow and invade the body's parts. Currently there are more than 100 types of cancer.

How you can help

Have you ever heard of the Susan G. Komen run? It is a very long run that raises money for research for treatments. My mom did it a few years ago (on a bike). Oh and there are always fundraisers and  parties for research.

In my old school we had a competition in which whichever class got the most money in donating for kids with leukemia won a pizza party and believe it or not my class won! The organization was called Pennies For Patients.

There are thousands more organizations in the world including this one.
