SAVING LIVES

Dedicated to doing this together!

WHAT DRIVES US?

Saving Families

Understanding how cancer impacts families has driven us for 6 years, but the reality of Covid 19 changes the way everyone looks at life. Some think it's a conspiracy, others that only certain people can get it and die from it, but the reality is that it does not care about what colour your skin is, or how old you are, or how many kms you road on your R200k bike!

Similar to cancer, you have a 50/50 chance of survival.

Cancer Heroes knows about this situation very well and that the only way to save lives is by standing together!

Knowing is Key

We have been involved in screening and early detection for years and are proud of the steps our leaders have taken in rolling out screening and detection. 

During screening a health worker will ask you some questions and scan your forehead to take your temperature.

They will ask if you travelled to a high risk region in the past 14 days, or if you had contact with anyone confirmed with COVID-19, as well as if you have symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty in breathing.  Based on your answers, the next step may be a test, or you can go home. 

Standing Together

During our response to Covid19, President Cyril Ramaphosa has led the way and we very proud of him. 

He has been the guiding light for many, so we should all stick to his plan and ensure we do the basics right.

So, Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, practice good respiratory hygiene, so cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash, or cough into your elbow. Stay at home and avoid sick people!

Visualizing What COVID-19 Does to Your Body

By now, researchers and health experts have gained a better understanding of the range of symptoms caused by COVID-19, which include fever, a dry cough, and of course, the dangerous inflammation of the respiratory system. Most of us know that COVID-19 can be much more severe than a typical flu, but lesser known are the mechanics behind how the virus causes pneumonia in its victims.

Today’s informative illustration, by scientific designer and animator Avesta Rastan, details the effects COVID-19 has on our lungs, from moderate to severe cases. 

It's all in Your Head!

Cancer Heroes assists all cancer patients however due to experience we have a specialist division for Head and Neck Cancers. Sadly, COVID-19 plays havoc through entering our bodies through this region. This is what Head and Neck Cancer it is all about and why it's so dangerous during this pandemic......

To help you understand more about head and neck cancers, it is a general term for a range of cancers in the mouth, nose, throat and neck areas. There are then the specific head and neck cancers which are named after the area where they originate, for example, oral cancer, pharyngeal cancer, laryngeal cancer, salivary gland cancer, or nasal or paranasal sinus cancer. These can then be split even further into specific areas they occur within these regions.

The experience of every diagnosed person with a head and neck cancer is quite different, but the regions above are all possible routes for the COVID-19 Virus.

The virus (COVID-19) is officially named SARS-CoV-2. It enters the body generally through the mouth or nose regions as mentioned above. From there, the virus makes its way down into the air sacs inside your lungs, known as alveoli. Once in the alveoli, the virus uses its distinctive spike proteins to “hijack” cells. The primary genetic programming of any virus is to make copies of itself, and COVID-19 is no exception. Once the virus’ RNA has entered a cell, new copies are made and the cell is killed in the process, releasing new viruses to infect neighboring cells in the alveolus. That's when a life threatening period is entered into...
