Spread of Breast Cancer

Below is my comment on the article of "The Changing Face of Breast Cancer", TIME dated on October 15, 2007.

071015TIMECoverWhenever action is needed to change the deteriorating situation like the spread of cancer diseases, the first thing to do is to let people know the fact and educate them as quickly as possible.

In this sense, it is quite fitting and proper for a sophisticated and global media like you to let many people on earth inform the shocking fact that breast cancer has been widespread not only in the developed countries but many developing ones with such an unexpected speed. I was one of the citizens who did not know the fact of breast cancer and was enlightened by your article.

To fight against this awful disease, some kind of global support system similar to “Baby Hatch” or a telephone hotline is needed for women who are suffering from breast cancers but being reluctant to talk about them for fear of being isolated from their husbands, families or communities. Each of them are so lonely and desperately need help.
