DRUM - - Ed's Note -

Can­cer fight­ers and sur­vivors are my he­roes. I couldn’t even be­gin to imag­ine what they’re go­ing through, but it’s ev­i­dent that it is emo­tion­ally and phys­i­cally painful.

But, in­stead of giv­ing up and us­ing their suf­fer­ing as an ex­cuse, they push through ev­ery day and fight for vic­tory – like Bra Hugh Masekela (I’m ready to fight this, 19 Oc­to­ber).

Their courage is im­mensely ad­mirable and they should be cel­e­brated ev­ery day, and be re­minded that they’re loved and ap­pre­ci­ated. Let’s make ev­ery day Can­cer Aware­ness Day. THOBILE MOTAUNG, VUMA VIL­LAGE
