Great Family: Cancer Awareness and Prevention

In today’s world, there is still a lot of misunderstanding about cancer in the community. It’s very important for our viewers to understand that a cancer diagnosis does not mean the end of the world. In fact, with the right type of treatment, support from family and friends, and a positive attitude from the patients themselves, there’s still a great chance of keeping this disease under control. In this new episode of Great Family, we’re so happy to have Dr. Angela Sun from Chinese Community Health Resource Center and Dr. Edward Chan to talk about Cancer Awareness and Prevention. Undoubtedly, it will be even better if we can prevent this disease from the very first beginning, and that’s why is very important for us to build healthy eating habits and exercise more.

Here’s a tip from Dr. Angela Sun:

“Don’t ignore the emotional needs of yourself and your family. It’s very important to do more research and understand the existing resources for cancer patients in the community. Don’t fight with cancer by yourself; be sure to ask for help from your friends and family, as well as the community.”
