Short book review for Steven Wong’s Moments (True Events)

This book has been written from the author’s point of view based on the real events that took place before, during and after his diagnosis of cancer. He shares with the readers on various plights during treatments and how one’s journey is eased with constant encouragement and support from various groups. The most prominent part of this book is the self-determination and constant perseverance of the author himself and how he manages to focus and be self-motivated at all times. He also persistently had an open mind to the events taking place.

Language used in this book is very straight forward and easy to interpret and this whole story is in a chronological order. The author also has given in-depth and intricate details on the stages he went through during the transition period and enhanced it with several scenarios such as lyrics of a song playing in that particular moment and given a very precise explanation on changes in his lifestyle during the whole course of pre and post treatment.  

Steven Wong’s Moments (True Events) is a suitable read for all individuals who wish to read and immerse into the life story of a survivor’s stint and gain better knowledge and exposure on the life of a cancer survivor.

4 Feb 2013 - World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day is an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). This year, the UICC is focusing on dispelling the following damaging myths and misconceptions about the disease:

Myth 1: Cancer is just a health issue.
Truth: Cancer is not just a health issue. It has wide-reaching social, economic, development, and human rights implications.

Myth 2: Cancer is a disease of the wealthy, elderly, and developed countries.
Truth: Cancer is a global epidemic. It affects all ages and socio-economic groups, with developing countries bearing a disproportionate burden.

Myth 3: Cancer is a death sentence.
Truth: Many cancers that were once considered a death sentence can now be cured, and for many more people, their cancer can be treated effectively.

Myth 4: Cancer is my fate.
Truth: With the right strategies, a third of the most common cancers can be prevented.
