#BoldAndBreastless: Weird MC pays tribute to women battling breast cancer
Popular female rapper, Weird MC has paid tribute to women battling with breast cancer by posting a picture of a breast-less model who she said survived breast cancer. Breast cancer is one of the deadliest diseases women are battling with.
In a tweet, the rapper said:
“Aww she overcame breast cancer This should motivate women presently dealing wv da same condition #BoldAndBreastless”
There are about 1.38 million new cases and 458 000 deaths from breast cancer each year (IARC Globocan, 2008). Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide, both in the developed and developing countries. In low- and middle-income countries the incidence has been rising up steadily in the last years due to increase in life expectancy, increase urbanization and adoption of western lifestyles.
Currently there is not sufficient knowledge on the causes of breast cancer, therefore, early detection of the disease remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control. When breast cancer is detected early, and if adequate diagnosis and treatment are available, there is a good chance that breast cancer can be cured. If detected late, however, curative treatment is often no longer an option. In such cases, palliative care to relief the suffering of patients and their families is needed.
