The National Cancer Institute is a Federally Funded agency responsible for various research programs, financing of centres, public information and funds a whole host of programs related to Cancer Research, Cancer Prevention and Treatment. It was founded in 1937 – and since then it has been battling this deadly illness.

Amongst hundreds of other grants that are given out by the National Cancer Institute, the Radiological Physics Center (RPC) in Houston, Texas and the Quality Assurance Review Center (QARC) in Providence, Rhode Island are financed each year to carry out their work. Information on all forms of Cancer, Treatment, Therapies and Preventions can be found on their website. The National Cancer Institute

I’m willing to wander till after I’m ill,
I’m willing to ponder the feeling within,
The Cancer controls me – it never gives in
The Cancer that causes my soul to feel ill.

The Cancer that never gives time to recall,
The Cancer that hurts me whenever I fall.
This Cancer is writing the words on the wall,
I’m willing to fight but never to crawl.
