Un azalea che salva molte vite

Un azalea che salva molte vite

Un’occasione per combattere il cancro anche a Otranto.
L’azalea della ricerca Airc sarà presso la Villa Comunale Idrusa dalla mattina del 13 maggio.
Airc, con l’aiuto di 25.000 volontari, distribuirà in circa 3000 comuni italiani 650.000 azalee che dovrebbero tradursi in un contributo di circa 10 milioni di euro per garantire continuità a progetti di ricerca sui tumori femminili che promettono risultati concreti.
In soli 30 anni, la guaribilità media dei tumori è più che raddoppiata e per alcune forme, come per il tumore al seno i tassi di guarigione sono saliti all’80%.
Ciò che fa la differenza e che rappresenta la grande conquista della ricerca è l’aumento delle diagnosi precoci, le uniche che consentono interventi curativi e tempestivi. A rendere il cancro una malattia sempre più curabile concorrono, da una parte, l’ingegno e la passione dei nostri ricercatori e dall’altra l’impegno di tutti coloro che credono nell’operato della ricerca e che non smettono di sostenerla.
La giornata dell’azalea quest’anno compie 28 anni e vuole essere un’opportunità per parlare al pubblico della grande vitalità femminile nella scienza e in particolare nel mondo della ricerca sul cancro, donne alle quali Airc ha voluto dedicare la pubblicazione speciale di corredo alle azalee in vendita nelle piazze “Donne per le donne – ricercatrici per le pazienti, donne attente a se stesse nella prevenzione”. La donna può prevenire la malattia quando attacca organi che ineriscono ai caratteri sessuali e quindi sta anche in lei la possibilità di proteggersi dal cancro.
L’arma, questa volta, è una sola: la prevenzione. Per questo è stato dato ampio spazio anche alle “ricette della salute”: semplici accorgimenti che, secondo gli esperti, potrebbero aiutarci ad ascoltare i segnali precoci del corpo e a consultare il medico quando si ha un dubbio. Questa può essere la strada vincente.
