Feb 4 is World Cancer Day.
To increase awareness for the fight against this deadly disease, 625 worldwide events are taking place, according to the World Cancer Day website.
On the local front, DJ Rosalyn Lee's touching Instagram post has prompted many of her followers to reminisce about the loved ones they have lost to cancer.
A portion of her Instagram post read:
"That said, I do miss mom. not just today, but every single f**kin day. I miss hearing her voice, of which I have no record of.
"I miss seeing her move and I miss her smile.
"She was sad for a very long time cuz she had a pretty rough life, and her smiles though rare, were the most beautiful flashes of pearly whites I've ever seen.
"Not recording videos of her was my biggest regret. But we didnt have smartphones back then, and we couldnt afford a handycam.
"Maybe this is why I take so many photos and videos and shit cuz lesson learnt.
"If you're on the verge of losing someone you love today, or have lost someone you love, my thoughts and heart's with you.
"The pangs of pain and the feeling of loss never goes away, but I promise that you'll still be strong enough to go about living life to the fullest.
"(I'm going to) share with you this quote by William Penn that soothes me whenever the feeling of loss gets a lil rough: "They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. death cannot kill what never dies."
