Cancer, also known as malignant neoplasm and the most feared word and disease in the world, is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. It can also affect nearby parts of the body and more distant parts through the lymphatic system or the blood stream.

Vision, according to the Strong’s Concordance Dictionary is “a sight (mentally), i.e., a dream, revelation, a mental image, or an invisible inspiration”. Vision motivates, directs and inspires. The centrality of vision in all human endeavours is better illustrated with a declaration from the Holy Bible to the effect that where there is no vision the people perish. So, developing a vision is an issue of great importance.

Helen Adam Keller, an American author and the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree, once noted that while blindness cuts people off from things, deafness cuts victims off from people.

For the young, even a mild or moderate case of hearing loss could bring difficulty learning, developing speech and building the important interpersonal skills necessary to foster self-esteem and succeed in school and life.

Culture is the sum total of man’s activities. How he eats, grows his food, wears his dress, worships, builds his house are all aspects of culture. Not only these, his dances when happy and dirges when sad are drawn from the culture. As posited by sociologists, culture is relative to time and place. What is culturally acceptable today may not be so tomorrow. Cultural practices in one place may be taboos in other places.
