"I understand that hostile and militaristic language creates fear and uncertainty
. This is harmful to people experiencing cancer and cancer communities. Negative war-like language rewires the brain
and may result in feelings of low-self worth associated with anxiety and depression.
"I commit to engage in and support nonviolent efforts to go #BeyondCancerWar, by changing language and building #Cancer Confidence in everyone, everywhere. Together we can change the conversation and ultimately the quality of life for people experiencing cancer."
