I was probably 5 or 6 years old when I first came across the reality of death. My aunt (mother’s elder sister) came to visit for the first time in my memory. Married to struggling artists the sisters, thick as thieves in their childhood, hardly met now #livingwithcancer #Cancer
I was too young to know at that time but she was dying. And she was in Delhi in the hope of delaying the eventuality. Mother of a young girl with special needs, she would, over the next few years, try everything she could to live. #livingwithcancer #Cancer #CancerAwareness
It’s at this time that I first heard how my grandfather — a man whose life, work and love for arts I had heard a lot about — died. Of #cancer in the colon in his late fifties. #livingwithcancer #CancerAwareness

We're sorry for not posting any thread yesterday. We had a little issue but it's resolved now.

It's Day 4 of our #CancerAwareness thread. We've learnt what cancer is and how it grows.

We've also learnt about the types of tumours and today...
We'll be talking about the different types of cancer.

There are five main types of cancer ♋ but do you know what determines the types? The cells in which they grow.
Don't get it twisted. This is different from the types of tumours we talked about earlier.

1. Carcinoma.

This type of cancer starts in the epithelial cells (this is the layer of cells that protects🛡️organs). Carcinomas may invade ☠️ other tissues and organs and move to the lymph nodes and other areas of the body. This invasion is known as metastasis.
