World Pediatric Cancer Day

Today is the world pediatric cancer day. Praying for all the little ones around the world for a better and healthier tomorrow. Praying for the families, who suffer physically, mentally and financially, to bring back the apple of their eyes to a healthy life... Prayers for all of you.
Cancer, from what I have learned in my high school biology, is an uncontrolled growth of our cells. All of us have inactive cancer cells in our body. although the reason for cancer is not yet fully known, some list it as
  • Chemicals around us, like smokes from Cigarette and factory emissions.
  • Food with a lot of artificial ingredients in it.
  • Radiation (even mobile, laptop and TV radiations).
  • Hereditary and through pregnancy.
Although prevention from this disease cannot be completely attained, we can take certain measures to reduce the risk of getting infected.
  • The most important thing is to avoid smoking. Smoking not only puts your life at risk, but also affects those of your kith and kin, the passive smokers.
  • Avoid eating fast food. Even though it is impossible, try to stick to organic foods as much as you can.
  • Never allow your little ones to play with anything that emit radiations.
May Allah bless us and our kids, and may He save us from deathly diseases. Ameen.

Thank you for sharing with us Najeeba. We can't control sickness or death but we can limit the risks. The life of our little ones is precious. May we remember and pray for the families and children touch by pain and cancer.
Take care, hope you & Aisha are well. xx
