ABOUT Cancer

Our bodies are made up of tiny cells that we can’t see with our eyes; you need a microscope to see them. Cells make up our skin, our organs, our blood and our bones.

Normal cells grow in a cycle; they grow, divide, die and do that over and over again. Cancer cells are different; they grow and divide and keep growing and dividing and get out of control. This is called abnormal cell growth. The abnormal cells that grow very fast and out of control are called cancer, and If found late and left untreated they can lead to death.
