Alternative ways of contributing to the fight against cancer

Cancer is one of the world’s most catastrophic diseases. There’s nothing as disheartening as watching the life ebb out of someone, and knowing that there is nothing which you can do to save them. In the same vein, however, it is always great to see humanity in action as the world joins hands to fight this great scourge.

Cancer fundraising is now a common practice all around the world. Since this is one disease that shows no regard for class, race or age, it has formed one of the evenest platforms for people to come together.

Fundraisers take many different forms. Some people fundraise as individuals, others as small groups, and some as communities, while others use cancer foundations to seek donations. The fundraising activities are themselves huge in variety, and they do not have to be as sorry as the disease itself. They could be fun activities like sports competitions, music concerts or even parties.
