The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
please help me raise money for people with cancer
Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread to other parts of the body.
So is it time to light-up, drink and eat what you want without a care in the world?
It won't come as a surprise that the answer is no.
All cancer has an element of chance - a roll of the dice that decides whether your DNA acquires a mutation that leads to cancer.
The study shows that two thirds of cancer types are simply chance.
But the remaining third are still heavily influenced by the choices we make.
Too much booze, time in the sun or being overweight mean we are playing with loaded dice and the odds are not in our favour.
Remember smoking accounts for a fifth of all cancers worldwide.
These findings are a reminder that cancer is often just bad luck and the only option is early detection.
But that's not an excuse to give up on those new year's resolutions already.
