Magdalene Iyamu Cancer Foundation

We' ve built a long standing relationship based on trust

Cancer, the very word conjures up visions of fear and suffering. If any disease has made itself an enemy of man, it is this one. Cancer may come in many forms but its outcome has always been damaging. The medical fraternity counts cancer as its greatest foe. It is the 2nd largest life taker disease and kills over 12 million people every year.

THE SILVER LINING

There is however a silver lining, cancer like every other disease can be cured, if diagnosed early and treated right, its effects can be reversed and lives can be saved. This sounds reasonable enough until you realize that only the privileged few have access to the best doctors and care. The under privileged have to face cancer without care and assistance, their ignorance and their helplessness often leave them with no hope of cure, Which is where we come in. Magdalene Iyamu Cancer Foundation is here to endeavor that cancer is detected at an early stage and no one has to fight cancer alone. Magdalene Iyamu Cancer Foundation will create consciousness on risk factors, cancer prevention, early detection and fight against the stigma.

WHAT IS CANCER?

Cancer is a broad group of disease involving unregulated cell growth. Cancer cells divide and grow uncontrollably forming malignant tumors which may invade nearby parts of the body. The cancer may also spread to more distant parts of the body through the lymphatic system or bloodstream. Not all tumors are cancerous, benign tumors (these are tumor that do not pose any threat) do not invade neighboring tissues and do not spread throughout the body.

HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

HER-2 is a protein that is expressed at a high level by about 20% of breast cancers. This is known as having HER-2-positive cancer. Having this receptor means the cancer tends to grow and spread faster than other forms of breast cancer, but there are special treatments available for this type of tumor.
