Frequently Asked Questions

How common are cancers?

Cancer is a common disease that can affect almost every part of your body. About 40% of all people worldwide have a chance of cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives. 

How does chemotherapy work?

Chemotherapy works by destroying cancer cells but unfortunately, it cannot tell the difference between a cancer cell and healthy cells. Some cancer cells grow slowly while others grow rapidly. Therefore, each chemotherapy drug is designed to target the growth patterns of a specific type of cancer cell. As a result, each drug works differently and is personalized to the patient for the most effective outcomes 

Why is screening helpful for early detection?

Screening helps find health problems before symptoms appear. Examples of screening tests include mammograms to find breast cancer and colonoscopy to find colon cancer. Early detection catches cancer when it’s in an early, more treatable stage.
