The word ‘cancer’ sends shivers down any spine. The growth of malignant cells, controlled and killed using various therapies, may relapse with vengeance. People have fought brave battles against cancer for years now. We may not be able to hear each brave story of people affected by cancer, but we can learn a lot from celebrities who have been detected with cancer and then fought the dreaded disease. They are also using their celebrity status to spread awareness about the disease and giving strength to all those who are struggling with cancer.
